When there’s a big swim meet, St. Clair shows up to perform.
The Saints left the Michigan Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association meet with five new school records.
St. Clair’s 200 medley relay team of Tristan Fraley, Christian Doenges, Evan Wonner and Adam George kicked off the meet with a school record time of 1:42.34. That time is also the top Division 3 time in the state according to Saints head coach Marcus Cronce.
The 200 freestyle relay team of Wonner, Fraley, William Oldford and George also set a school record and hit a state cut with a 1:31.46.
The 50 freestyle was a little interesting as St. Clair’s record was broken three different time. Wonner stepped up and broke the record in his 50 freestyle heat, but then George took it right back just minutes later by swimming a 22.24. That went away quick as Wonner’s split in the 200 relay was a 22.22, taking the record right back.
“Yeah, pretty crazy,” Cronce said.
Wonner also swam to a school record 52.55 in the 100 butterfly, good for sixth place at the meet.
George also set a school record and hit another state cut in the 500 freestyle, touching the wall at 4:58.27.
Doenges, Fraley, Kanon Brooks and Oldford also swam a 3:33.47 in the 400 freestyle relay.
Marysville also was represented in four different races, led by sophomore Derek Wilson and his two strong individual showings. Wilson placed 62nd in the 200 IM with a 2:08.56 and a 48th place finish in the 100 breaststroke with a 1:04.02.
Michael Rasnick also earned 78th in the 100 backstroke with a 1:00.39.
The Vikings 200 medley relay team of Rasnick, Wilson, Jeremy Latham and Ian Hall placed 62nd at 1:50.57.
