M-S boys' swim competes in Olympia

It is difficult to improve throughout the season and prepare for the end-of-the-season sectional meet when meets keep getting cancelled.

The Mahomet-Seymour boys' swim team had back-to-back Saturday meets postponed because of inclement weather.

Last Thursday, though, the Bulldogs were able to squeeze in a weekday triangular meet in Olympia.

The Bulldogs placed second behind LaSalle-Peru and ahead of host Olympia.

Dalton DeMay and Max Katz placed first and second, respectively, in the 1-meter dive. DeMay, who holds the school record, scored a 204.04, and Katz's dives totaled a 191.73.

The Bulldogs fielded 200-yard freestyle teal teams.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of William Larson, Ryan Whitehouse, DeMay and Evan Herriott was runner up with a time of 1:45.18.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team Reed Maase-Mueller, Gavin Williams, Joey Wanninger and Levi Frost took fifth at 2:07.44.

In the 200-yard freestyle, Groff and Ben Jennings finished third and fourth, respectively, with times of 2:09.00 and 2:27.80.
