The team swam a great meet against the competitive Shelbyville team, who have done a great job of replacing the talent they lost after last season. The Arabians continued to impress with time-drops while entering a long stretch of many meets. The team of Trevor Cobb, Cameron Kordes, Evan Fredericks, and Pyry Kurunsaari started the meet off with an impressive win.
Cameron Kordes won the 200 Freestyle with teammate Robbie Courtney coming in with a close second. This was a huge boost to the guy’s spirits and lead the way for several impressive times by the team. Next up was Evan Fredericks and Trevor Cobb who finished one, two in the 200 IM. Evan took over from the start and never let go. Fredericks would go on to win the 100 Fly as well, showing his ability in all strokes.
Divers Cayden Sisson and Jonathan Pardue finished 2nd and 3rd. Each one is continuing to work on new dives and perfect their routines.
The 200 Freestyle relay of Brayden Jones, Oliver Claxton, Cole Robison, and Robbie Courtney won in an impressive fashion, out-touching the A relay of Shelbyville.
Trevor Cobb, a promising sophomore on the team, won the 100 Backstroke beating out fellow swimmer Tanner Keesling.
Cameron Kordes showed off his short-axis stroke ability in the 100 Breaststroke with a blue ribbon finish. Kordes went on to man the anchor leg of the winning 400 Yard Freestyle relay alongside Evan Fredericks, Pyry Kurunsaari, and Trevor Cobb. The team jumped out to a good-sized lead that Shelbyville was unable to close.
On Thursday, January 10th the Men’s Swimming and Diving team will look to swim inter-conference team Delta at home. Meet starts at 5:30 pm.
