Hatchet Boys Swimming Team Defeats Medford
Published on 01/13/2021 under Sports On Tuesday night the Hatchet Boys Swim Team competed at home against the Medford Raider team. After a loss to the Raiders at their pool back in December, when they were not at full strength as a team, the tables were turned when Medford could only swim 5 out of 8 of their swimmers. With that, the Hatchets were able to take top honors in all but one of the events we swam in, with the exception of the 200 yard Medley Relay. Overall the Hatchet times were a bit flat tonight with the exception of a few events: Senior Noah Buckwalter continues to improve each meet, again dropping a cumulative 2.23 additional seconds from his 50 and 100 yard freestyle events, for a pair of 4th place finishes. Senior Cullen Flynn was able to drop 1.86 seconds from his 100 yard Backstroke, setting a career best time of 1:15.98 and claiming 2nd place for the effort. His old time of 1:17.84 was set at the very end of last season at the WIAA Sectional meet. Sophomore Zach Hanse swam the pair of distance freestyle events and showed marked improvement in both. In the 200 yard Freestyle he took 1st place with a 2:00.63, a time 10.71 seconds faster than when he swam the event last. In the 500 yard Freestyle he also took a first, and swam 4.31 seconds faster than his time from last season with a 5:37.94. Senior Ethan Liebnitz broke the 25 mark for the first time in the 50 yard Freestyle event and took 1st place in the event with a :24.56, a .85 second personal record. And finally, Senior Alex Norman swam his heart out in the 100 yard Breaststroke event, finishing just .85 seconds behind Medford's Nathan Sislo in a close finish. Alex's time of 1:22.58 was 2.36 seconds faster than his last time out in the event.
