BOYS PREP SWIMMING
CHENEY – While last Thursday’s match-up between the Grandview High School boys swim team and Cheney might not have appeared to have been a win for the Greyhounds (score wise), the 51 team points the GHS swimmers brought home were well deserved.
The final score showed Cheney with 104 points, but Grandview’s boys made the Cheney Blackhawks earn every one.
GHS Coach Patrick Elerding said the boys swam “great.”
“The relays did great and we had a couple first place finishes,” Elerding said.
The 200-yard medley relay quartet of Brendon Lynch, Micah Binfet, David Wacenske and Tavian Valenzuela shot out in front with a time of 2:02.58 to claim first place honors over the Blackhawks squad of Tepp, Schreiber, Hagel and Foster, who followed with a time of 2:14.6.
Grandview’s second 200-yard relay team of Riley Harris, Joseph Fleming, Maurice Prieto and Adam Fleming claimed a third place finish with a time of 2:28.17.
Wacenske, Fleming, Binfet and Lynch teamed up to claim a second place finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay. Their time of 1:49.3 was well behind Cheney’s team of Babcock, Studle, Nadeau and Prophet, who touched the wall with a time of 1:40.38.
Harris, Fleming, Sabastian Rau-camp and Prieto claimed another second place finish in the 400-yard freestyle relay with a time of 4:45.5. Cheney’s Babcock, Studle, Prophet and Nadeau finished first with a time of 3:42.7.
Grandview’s Valenzuela claimed the Greyhounds’ second victory in the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:12.9, while Binfet stayed close behind in second place with a time of 1:13.8.
Binfet went on to claim a second place finish in the 200-yard individual medley, followed by Lynch with times of 2:35.5 and 2:40.2, respectively. Top honors went to Cheney’s Nadeau (2:31.5).
Lynch also clocked a second place finish for Grandview in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:19.6. The winning time, set by Babcock of Cheney, was 1:04.13.
Also adding points to the Grandview score sheet was Prieto, who claimed a third place finish in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 1:01.6. Cheney’s Babcock claimed first place honors with a clocking of 53:17.
