DuBOIS - The St. Marys Area swim and dive team traveled to DuBois on Thursday night to take on the Beavers for their fourth dual meet of the season. The Dutchmen remain undefeated on the season as they won their meet 110-65, while the Lady Dutch lost a close contest, 100-84, bringing their record to 1-3.
Individual leaders for the Dutchmen were Jeffrey Moore in the boys’ 200 and 500 yard freestyles, Andrew Cotter in the 200 yard individual medley, Jake Burns in 1m diving, Corey Koss in the 100 yard backstroke and Scott Barber in the 100 yard breaststroke.
The highlight of the evening came from a record-setting swim at the end of the meet, when the boys’ 400 freestyle relay of Corey Koss, Matt Hoffman, Moore and Cotter broke a longstanding record of 3:28.64 set by Bradford with their 3:27.49 first-place performance. St. Marys now holds five pool records at the DAHS Natatorium, including all three boys’ relays.
In addition to the victorious 400 free relay, both of the other boys’ relays finished first, which included the 200 yard medley relay of Corey Koss, Cotter, Alex Renwick and Ryan Struble, as well as the 200 yard free relay of Ryan Struble, Hoffman, Renwick and Cotter.
The Lady Dutch also had solid winning performances from Kylee Proudfit in the 200 yard individual medley, Lauren McAnanay in the 500 yard freestyle and Emma Daghir in the 100 yard breaststroke.
The other win on the evening for the Lady Dutch was the 200 yard medley relay of Melinda Stebich, Daghir, Michaela Rupprecht and Proudfit.
“We are at the midpoint of our season already and we are encouraged by what we have seen so far,” said SMA coach Mark DeMuro. “The team continues to work hard but we need to finish out the regular season strong, so our work is far from done.”
The squads will have their next meet on Thursday, Feb. 2 against Brookville at home. The meet starts at 6 p.m.
