One of the largest swim invitationals in the entire Tri-State area saw Milan and Oldenburg Academy compete as part of the South Dearborn Invitational last Saturday.
The field boasted high schools from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio ranging from the smallest schools to the biggest schools around. Seven total teams in both boys and girls action brought full scoring rosters to the event.
Milan’s boys finished with 188 points and placed second on the day, trailing just invitational winner Ryle (Ky.) who put up 358 points. Cincinnati LaSalle was third at 159 points, Oldenburg picked up an impressive fourth place spot at 133 points and Wilmington (Ohio) rounded out the top five with 98 points. Other team finishers included South Dearborn (67 points) and Lawrenceburg (42 points).
Gabe Rigdon and Dylan Thomas each had an individual win for the Indians. Rigdon won the 100 fly while Thomas took top honors in the 100 backstroke. Parley Hartwell was a third place finisher in the 100 breaststroke and Milan’s 400 freestyle boys relay team finished third to wrap up top three finishers.
It was a big day for Oldenburg’s Nash King who not only won the 100 breaststroke but also earned a first place ribbon in the 200 individual medley. Santiago Schutte won the 500 freestyle before a third place spot in the 200 freestyle. The Oldenburg 200 medley boys relay team placed second.
On the girls side, Ryle completed the sweep with 398 points and Cincinnati Mercy finished second at 203 points. South Dearborn’s 164 points was good enough for third place while Milan and Oldenburg were fourth and fifth place with 120 points and 98 points respectively. Wilmington and Lawrenceburg rounded out the standings.
Molly Knecht was Milan’s top finisher, placing third in the 100 fly and Caroline Niese finished third for Oldenburg in the 100 breaststroke.
Oldenburg alongside Batesville head to Milan tonight for a local tri-meet.
