The Richmond Intermediate Swimming and Diving team put up a great fight with their Thursday night competitor, Connersville Middle School. The Red Devils started their meet strong with a four event first place sweep, but didn’t have the numbers to contend.
First place finishers were Girls and Boys 200 Yard Medley Relays (Ryan Wagers, Avery Bohn, Kira Walker, Lucy Engle and Landon Smith, Cayden Lindahl, Masson Heiny, Zavier Mills), Boys and Girls 200 Freestyle (Ryan Wagers and Masson Heiny), One Meter Diving (Jaxin Bohn), Girls and Boys 500 Freestyle (Lucy Engle and Landon Smith), Girls 200 Freestyle Relay (Lucy Engle, Kira Walker, Ryan Wagers, Avery Bohn), Girls and Boys 100 Backstroke (Ryan Wagers and Landon Smith), and Boys 400 Freestyle Relay (Masson Heiny, Zavier Mills, Cayden Lindahl, Landon Smith).
Leading scorers for the Red Devils were Landon Smith and Ryan Wagers who both earned first place in all four events for the evening. Avery Bohn, Lucy Engle, Jaxin Bohn, and Masson Heiny were also major contributors winning first place in three out of four events.
Richmond had zero disqualifications, a first for the season. The team’s hard work and dedication has paid off with technique improvements, personal best times, and first place finishes.
