On Friday, Jan. 10, the Springville boys varsity swimming and diving team improved its record to 7-2 on the year by defeating Iroquois.
Individual winners on the night were Eric Schweickert in the 200 Freestyle, Austin Yetter in the 200 IM, Wyatt Fuller in Diving, and Zach Hughey in the 100 Backstroke.
Springville also took first in all three relays. Contributing key finishes as well were Connor Hughey, Elliot Emley, Justin Buczek, Garrett Casey, Max Boettger and James Snyder.
The following day, the Springville divers traveled to Lake Shore to take part in the first Chris Ignatowski Memorial Diving Invitational. Wyatt Fuller, Ben Sullivan and Austin Yetter competed in the 11 dive competition, with this being the latter two’s first-ever 11 dive meet.
Fuller was able to take second place overall, finishing behind St. Francis diver, Joseph Victor. Fuller’s score was good enough to break the pool record, had Victor also not broken it as well.
While he may not have gotten the pool record, Fuller broke Springville’s own 11-dive school record with his score of 502.85. This score also qualifies him for the state championship for his third consecutive year.
