With the regular-season meet calendar winding down, the Royals scored a dual meet victory against visiting North Central, 110-70 on Thursday night.
The night began by honoring the senior class, this time announcing their college decisions or possible plans for next year. This group has done an outstanding job mentoring younger teammates and leading by example.
The Royals led off the meet with a victory in the medley relay, with the all-senior squad of Keegan Streett, Justin Voelker, Thomas Reising, and Logan Hess taking the win.
The most exciting race of the evening was the 200 IM. The race was close all the way, with the six fastest swimmers separated by just over a second at the race’s midway point. But the Royals surged down the stretch, with junior Matt Truxall leading a 1-2-3 sweep of the event alongside sophomore Charlie Rogers and freshman Jack Waren. Truxall later took the win in the 100 breast.
Reising was outstanding in the 50 free despite finishing second – he is so hungry to get better, especially on his starts, turns, and breakouts. Just after the break, he dominated the 100 fly, winning by almost two full seconds.
Adding wins for the Royals were Streett in the 100 back (56.59), Voelker in the 500 (5:16.53), and sophomore Troy Borrero recording his first career event victory in the diving competition.
Great win for the Royals and we’ll look forward to great things ahead for this group. One more dual meet on the road against Zionsville next Thursday, then we’ll kick off championship season with the Reserves Championships on January 30.
