Bucs Swim to Victory

Blake Tuttle

 The Milford High swim teams had a busy week taking at Indian River and Lake Forest.  The boys scored an 82-58 victory versus Lake Forest after a 64-104 loss to Indian River, while the girls clobbered both Indian River, 122-41, and Lake Forest, 100-56.

 Oddly enough, the Lake Forest meet ended early due to a power failure and a mutual agreement among the coaching staffs.

For the girls, Milford’s main scorers included seniors Lexi Coon and Kristen Johnson, junior Alyssa Sanders and freshman Ali Sanders.  The quartet won both the 200 medley relay and 200 free relay events in both meets, while Coon and the Sanders also scored several individual wins to help the Bucs improve to 5-3 for the season.

 Also picking up wins for Milford were sophomore Peyton Shockley, seniors Briana Walls and Katelyn Lewis in the 400 free relay with Johnson and junior Paige Davis in the 100 freestyle against Indian River.

Against Lake Forest, the Milford girls picked up wins from Johnson, Coon, Alyssa and Ali Sanders along with Brittany Roberts in the 100 breaststroke.

In addition, the boys, who moved to 4-4, picked up victories by senior Jordan Lingo, juniors Cody Scott and Jesse McCormick in more than one event against Indian River.  Junior Ethan Reichold helped out in the victory in the 200 Medley Relay as did sophomore James Hagen in the 200 free relay.

In their meet against Lake Forest, the boys earned wins from Scott, Lingo, Hagen and McCormick. Junior Scottie Wolfe also helped out the 200 medley relay team.

Coach Kate Lynch thought the meet “was solid” and that there were “lots of fast times and progress towards personal goals.”

Meanwhile, sophomore Katie Zang described the meet against Lake Forest as a “good meet” and noted that “it is unfortunate we were not able to finish the meet.”
