Swimming: Dreadnaughts dunk Adrian in SEC White dual-meet

The Dexter swimming and diving team winning SEC White Division dual-meets is almost as sure a thing as kids wanting ice cream, teenagers wanting the keys to the car or Donald Trump wanting headlines.

The Dreadnaughts dunked visiting Adrian 145-38 on Thursday in a White Division dual-meet.

Dexter is off to a splashingly great season. The Dreads are ranked No. 3 in the state in Division 2 and have beaten three teams ranked in the top 10 in Division 1.

Dexter’s only loss this season has been to D-1 top-ranked Saline.

The Dexter 200 medley relay team (Kate Mesaros, Lizzy Merriman, Gretchen Schultz and Sarah Lynch) got the meet against Adrian off on a nice stroke, winning in 1:56.65.

The Dreads swept the individual medley with Schultz taking first (2:18.93), Hannah Quist taking second (2:22.58) and Danielle Westman third (2:24.86).
