The Cascade boy swim team finished the season with a 6th place finish at the Sectionals in Avon. The Medley Relay team of Ethan Davis, Cason vonEhrenkrook, Caden Potters, and Noah Bush brought home a 5th place finish. The 200 IM was perhaps the best race of the entire sectional as Cascade’s Dane Market and Plainfield’s Brian Beasley swam the event stroke for stroke. Beasley was able to out touch Market by .55 hundredths of a second. Market set a New School Record for the event with a time of 2:00.66.
Freshman Caden Potters dropped a half second from the prelims and finished 8th in the 100 fly with a time of 59.59. Another Freshman making it to the final round was Jackson Bolinger who finished 15th in the B final of the 100 free posting a time of 58.55. The 200 Free Relay of Ethan Davis, Noah Bush, Jackson Bolinger and Evan Franklin was DQ’d for a improper turn and was not permitted to post a time. The 100 backstroke event saw Caden Potters drop over a second and grab a 7th place finish. The Breaststroke B final showcased Freshman Cason VonEhrenkrook who swam his way to a 12th place finish.
The A final breaststroke event pitted Dane Market against Brian Beasley for a second time and the two battled the entire 100 yards with Beasley again out touching Market at the finish. Dane set a new Cascade record and is the first Cadet to do the 100 breaststroke sub minute by posting a record time of 59.08.
The final relay of the day was the 400 free relay and the team of Dane Market, Caden Potters, Jackson Bolinger, and Evan Franklin finished in 5th place.
The future of the boys swim team is very bright as they return all 12 current swimmers and are looking to add several additional swimmers next season. According to Coach Amy Phipps, the sky is the limit for this group. “This is a group of hard working and talented swimmers, we are gonna make them stronger and put them in a position next season to make a big impact at the sectionals”.
