Beating a traditionally strong program like Hutchinson’s is always a feather in the swimming cap for the Montevideo boys team. After beating Hutchinson in 2012, Montevideo lost to the Tigers last season.
The Thunder Hawks edged the Tigers 98-88 last Thursday at Hutchinson for their most satisfying win of the season.
The T-Hawks got off to a great start, going 1-2 in the emedley relay, with Jack Spaeth, Tyler DeZeeuw, Daylen Mitlyng and Carson Hein winning the event and the quartet of Jakob Erickson, Kane Glomstad, Calin Anderson and Joe Varpness taking second.
“The start of the meet was huge, splitting up our medley relays and creating two that had the opportunity of going 1-2 in the event,” said coach Matt Olson.
Also winning their events were Calin Anderson, butterfly; Spaeth, backstrome; and Glomstad, breaststroke.
“ It was a meet that everything had to come together,” said Olson. “It all came together to give our team a great boost of confidence with a win.”
Montevideo’s next meet will be the Watertown-Mayer Invitational on Saturday.
