  • 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.
