Hatchet swimmers hit it hard
The THS swimmers hit three meets last week, closing with the Ashwaubenon Invite.
“(It) has traditionally been a good meet, and this year was no exception – 4 of our individual swims were faster by over 5 full seconds from their seed time, and we had a total of 55.27 seconds of time drop for the meet!” THS coach Marion Kohl said.
Points came from: Logan Loretz (8th, 100 free, :54.27/14th, 100 brea, 1:12.01); Nathan Goehe (12th, 200 free, 2:06.96/14th, 500 free, 5:58.36); Kole Svacina (16th, 100 back, 1:13.18); 200 medley (Svacina, Loretz, Goehe, Peyton Hamm, 11th, 2:02.08); and 200 free (Hamm, Lucas Tjugum, Goehe, Loretz, 1:44.75).
THS scored 14 more in a 98-69 loss to Antigo than the 110-55 tally from December.
“The butterfly was an especially exciting race as Logan came from behind to touch out Antigo’s Austin Arlen by just under a half second,” Kohl said.
Winning in the metered pool were: Loretz (100 fly, 100 brea) and the 200 medley (Svacina, Loretz, Goehe, Hamm).
Lakeland pulled out a 106-63 win on Thursday, where THS shifted events around.
Loretz won the 100 brea (1:12.18).
“Tonight’s meet was a tough one for some of the Hatchet swimmers… missing practice this week due to the school closures, coupled with this being our second out of three away meets in four days is taking a toll,” Kohl said.
