AKRON — Tippecanoe Valley’s boys swim team suffered a competitive Three Rivers Conference loss to Rochester Tuesday, 98-83, while the Lady Zebras won by a more comfortable, 113-70 margin in Akron.
The Vikings won six of their 12 events at the meet. Chase Brower claimed three wins himself with a 22.83 stop for first in the 50 free, a 1:08.84 time for top honors in the breast stroke and a turn as anchor behind Daniel Alexander, Mason Stephen and Dakota Prater in the medley relay, where Valley clocked 1:58.18 for their only relay win of the night. Prater claimed a second win in the butterfly, where his 1:06 flat was a field best, and Alexander clocked 5:56.36 in the 500 free to win that event. Travis Shull’s 154.15 in the diving competition earned him first place there ahead of teammate Zach Hodge’s 142.75 as the Vikings went one-two in the event.
The Lady Vikings celebrated a quartet of wins in their dual, meanwhile.
