Swimming: Dreadnaughts race past Milan, Chelsea to improve to 8-0 on the season

The Dexter boys’ swimming and diving team continues to swim along in the win column – at this point, a loss would be unfamiliar waters.

The Dreadnaughts added two more victories to the grand total with two more wins on Saturday at Milan High School. Dexter defeated the host Big Reds 112.5.-67.5 and also knocked off rival Chelsea 128-55. The Dreadnaughts have dominated the Bulldogs in recent years in swimming but it doesn’t make the victory any less sweet – it is Dexter-Chelsea after all.

Dexter improved to 8-0 on the season including 4-0 in the SEC White. The Dreadnaughts swim at Lincoln at 6 p.m. on Thursday and then face a strong Skyline team at noon on Saturday in Ann Arbor.

The results for the Milan-Chelsea quad are not important so we will skip going through the meet – JUST KIDDING.

The Dreadnaughts opened strong with a victory in the medley relay. The team of Stuart Bovich, Adam Hauser, Matthew Resende and Zach Norris touched first in a D-2 state-cut time of 1 minute, 42.98 seconds. The team of Lucas Greatorex, Jack Potsos, Otto Krueger and Tristan Lorincz was fourth in 1:56.88.

Dexter took three of the top five spots in the 200 free with Clayton Kinnard first (D-2 state-cut time of 1:43.56), Dylan O’Connor third (1:57.54) and Grady Wheeler fifth (2:04.70).
