Swim team nips CDA, Century in tight meet

200 swimmers due in Ketchum Saturday

     It was a very competitive and successful three-team home opener for the Wood River High School swim team Saturday, Sept. 20 at the Wood River Y pool in Ketchum.

     The Wood River girls’ team continued its win streak outscoring Coeur d’Alene High School by 13 points in the final team standings, while third-place Century of Pocatello was close behind. Wood River’s boys were a respectable third.

     The local girls captured all three relays. They were the 200 medley relay with Maddie Johnson, Kaedi Fry, Chiloe Spelius and Katherine Lemma; the 200 free with Lemma, Fry, Olivia Wentzell and Spelius; and 400 free with Lemma, Fry, Wentzell, and Johnson.

     First-place individual wins were:

     Sophomore Chiloe Spelius in 100 and 200 free; junior Maddie Johnson in 200 I.M. and 100 fly with a new school record of 57.45 seconds; and senior Kaedi Fry in 100 breast.

     Adding points for the Wolverines were:

     Junior Olivia Wentzell (2nd 50 and 100 breast); sophomore Katherine Lemma (3rd 50 free); sophomore Danielle Doerflein (5th 100 breast/6th 100 free); senior Mia Smith (5th 50 free/9th 100 breast); and freshman Allie Trotter-Wright (4th 100 back/6th in 50 free).

     For the Wood River boys, point-getters were freshmen Mason Johnson (2nd 200 and 500 free) and Nyle Prebowo (5th 100 free/100 breast).

     The Wolverines will host over 200 swimmers at the Wood River High School Invitational Saturday, Sept. 27 at Ketchum’s Y Pool. The meet will start at 11:30 a.m.
