LINCOLN – The Fremont Tigers swim team put up a good night at the Lincoln North Star / Pius double dual after a tough week of Christmas break training.
Some highlights on the boys side:
Colton Juhl picked up a win in the 500 free swimming a 5:40. He looked very strong in this race and it would good to see him keep some consistency.
Logan Kirk swam 3 relays for the boys tonight but hit a 1:01 in his 100 free. Logan has steadily been improving his sprint free so it was exciting to see him get close to the 1 minute mark.
Subway swimmer of the meet honors went to Conner Schurz. Conner had a great meet swimming the 200 free for the first time and showing promise in this event. He also dropped time in his 50 and 100 splits on relays and swam the 50 back to help make a boys B Medley relay.
Mack Prince had a solid night of swims with the 200 free and 100 back. He was just off his season best in the 100 back but swimming sore and tired and able to go 1:00 right now was a huge highlight.
On the girls side:
Lauren Gifford picked up a win in the 500 for the girls, while also aiding in relay success.
Emma Walz swam a strong 100 fly getting just out touched going a 1:02. She also swam a 1:00.10 in the 100 back which was a good time to see after being tired, sore and putting in a lot of yards over break.
Ellie Schiemann had a 20 second time drop in the 500 free which was huge for the her as we head into the better half of the season. She is looking strong and we can’t wait to see what she can do.
Sister Addie dropped over 4 seconds in her 200 IM to help the girls team tonight.
Subway swimmer of the meet honors went to Kylie Schurz for her performance in the 200 free and 100 breast. Schurz had a 5 second drop in the 200 free proving that she can be a solid scorer for the girls in this event. She also cut 2 seconds off her season best breaststroke time.
Overall a great meet, coaches were happy with all the swims especially after having a week of practices that were double the yardage compared to prior to Christmas. Coach Granger says they will be pushing the swimmers in their practices now. “We are slowly getting ready for the kids to swim fast in February, so now we start the long grind over these next 3 weeks.”
