Next up is the 200-yard freestyle. Once again this race came down to the final seconds. Finishing in first is Luke Martens and two seconds behind him is Jack Reif.

Sticking with 200 yards but with the IM. The top three in this one were neck and neck throughout. In the end, it’s Keian Lam finishing first followed by Sam Lohman, and Jonathan Wang. 

The quickest race in the 50-yard freestyle was by far the closest race of the night. The top three were separated by just .2 seconds. First was Alvin Ng, second was Alex Schwartz, and third was Ethan Herscher.

Jumping into the final length of the 500 freestyle with a three-way battle for first. Pulling away at the end is Jack Reif who beats Luke Martens by one-tenth of a second. .03 behind Martens is Mason Hofmann.

After that intense finish, we go back to the relays with the 200 freestyle. Out in front with a time of 1:27.48 is a group of North swimmers that consist of Jonathan Wang, Alvin Ng, Trenton Polk, and Ethan Herscher.

Flipping over for the 100-yard backstroke. This one came down to the final second between two Warriors as Tyler Bardak just edged out his teammate Shaun Bahl. 

The Warriors remain undefeated in the conference after a close finish in the 400-relay 

Moving on to the breaststroke. Jonathan Wang is one of the top swimmers in the area in this race and he shows why. He finishes two seconds ahead of Keian Lam and Alvin Ng. 

That brings us to the 400 relay. At this point in the meet Waubonsie has a one-point advantage so whoever wins this one wins the meet. After a highly contested race its the Warriors of Tyler Bardak, Luke Martens, Shaun Bahl, and Sam Lohman that gives Waubonsie the win.
