---- — The Shelbyville Laker swim team hosted a home meet and celebrated success for Shelbyville kids who swim for the Lakers and the Sullivan Blue Dolphins.

“We swam Crystal Lake and also invited Sullivan Blue Dolphins to compete too,” said Laker coach Nicole Hendry. “It was really fun since some of the swimmers who started with the Lakers and now swim year round with SBD came to compete. The meet went fast and smooth with the help of our parent volunteers.

“This sport requires a lot of volunteers, especially for our home meets. Our parents have worked hard this summer and the swimmers, I think, have more fun knowing their parents are involved too.”

Madison Kerr (10&U) scored a 1st, a 2nd, and a 3rd. Kerr won the 50 meter breaststroke (1:01.37), was 2nd in the 50 meter freestyle (45.94), and 3rd in the 100 meter individual medley (2:10.60).

“My eye has been on Madison Kerr this season,” Coach Hendry said. “She has been working really hard and her times are proving her determination to be a star. I’ve also noticed Eddie Clearwater’s sportsmanship this season. Not only is he making great times but he has been working with our 5 year-olds during practice. He has really shown a great example of how to be a mentor and role model for our new and young athletes.”

Clearwater (12&U) placed 2nd in the 100 IM (2:11.05), was 3rd in the 50 meter freestyle (43.89), and 6th in the 50-meter breaststroke (1:10.57).

“Saturday was a special day for us,”Hendry said. “We celebrated Hampton Petska’s 6th birthday.”

Petska and his teammates won the 8&U 100 medley relay (Nash Knearem, Gatlin Knearem, Isaac Chambers, Petska) 2:49.00. He also placed 4th in the 25 meter freestyle (39.06), 4th in the 25 meter backstroke (52.0), and 5th in the 25 meter butterfly (52.0).

Braxton Vice (14&U) won the 50 meter butterfly (40.35), was 2nd in the 50 meter freestyle (34.27) and 2nd in the 50 meter breaststroke (42.53).

Meredith Chambers (6&U) also scored a win in the 25 meter backstroke (37.35). Alexis Jokisch made it #1, #2 in the 25 meter back, taking 2nd (39.33). Chambers, Jokisch, and their teammates also won the Girls 6&U 100 meter freestyle relay (Jokisch, Ashlyn Behl, Sara Tynan) 3:59.78. The same girls were 2nd in the 8&U 100 medley relay (3:44.00).

The other 1st place Shelbyville finish went to Macy Owens, Ella Tynan, Anna Tynan, and Abigail Kaiser in the Girls 8&U 100 Free (2:09.35).

Former Shelby swimmers, who did well on Saturday, are swimming for SBD, a year-round program.

Noah Spain (8&U) won the 25 meter freestyle (22.0), won the 25 meter butterfly (25.91), and won the 25 meter backstroke (26.82). Gabrielle Spain (10&U) won the 50 meter freestyle (42.38), was 2nd in the 50 meter butterfly (50.0), was 2nd in the 10&U 200 medley (Mackenzie Erixon, Deanna Clark, Gabrielle Spain, Alyssa Shriver) 3:51.88, and was 2nd in the 12&U 200 Free (G. Spain, Ailey Mitchell, Jessica Renfro, Calista Clark) 2:41.83.

McKenna Kull (30.04) and Allison Oligschlaeger (33.83) went #1, #3 in the 12&U 50 Free. Kull also won the 50 Fly (34.86), won the 50 Back (35.76), followed in 3rd by Sydnie Helton (44.61). Emily Oligschlaeger won the Girls 8&U 25 Back (26.16). Kull, Oligschlaeger and Helton also were on the 2nd place 12&U 200 Medley (3:34.78).
