Saline’s pool was pulsating with energy on Thursday, October 12th as the Hornets dominated against Monroe. Saline swept the top three places in the first eight events, and Head Coach Todd Brunty took mercy on the Trojans and entered every swimmer in the final four events as exhibition, meaning they can’t score points.

Saline won the top 4 places to start off the night strong with a 200 yard medley relay. There was not a second’s difference between the “A relay”, “B relay” and C relay” times, and Saline’s “D relay” beat out Monroe’s “A relay” by nearly fifteen seconds.

Senior Bailey Lupo won the 200 yard freestyle with a time of 2:09:27, and was trailed by freshman Elizabeth Burchart (2:12:48). Junior Annika Olsen was third with 2:14:08.

Senior Madeline Robison prevailed in the 200 yard I.M and won by a huge margin of seven seconds. Freshman Anna Bosinger was second (2:30:72), sophomore Madison Miller was third (2:31:32), and senior Alexis Ploutz-Snyder snatched fourth (2:32:15).

Sarah Burchart succeeded in the 50 yard freestyle, winning with a 26.74. Junior Gabrielle Marsh placed second (28.87) and Jane Altevogt was third (29:79).

On the diving boards, there was an absence of Monroe divers and Hornet divers Sarah Densham and Paige Gidley dove as exhibition. Sophomore Megan Mulligan won the diving with 187.72. Emily Marvin followed Mulligan with a 183.15. Freshman Gabriella Richards was third (175.12), and sophomore Morgen Comfort excelled to place fourth (166.88).

Back in the pool for the 100 yard fly, Kelsey Robinson, Paige Wilson, Madelyn Turner, and Alexis Ploutz-Snyder went 1-2-3-4. Continuing on the Hornet’s streak of excellence, Madeline Robison (57:30), Lauryn Kruse (58:12), and Annika Olsen (1:00:00) experienced a 1-2-3 streak of victory again in the 100 yard freestyle.

Emma Loveland won the 500 yard freestyle for Saline and Marissa Gerber was second.

After the 500 free, Saline entered their final four events as exhibition, letting the Monroe swimmers place in the top spots for every race. Many of the Hornet swimmers still would have won their respective races if they were entered.

The swimmers and divers compete against Brighton at home next week (Tuesday, October 17th) and take on Huron at Huron High School on Thursday the 19th.
