Marquette swimmers, Westwood divers win at Splash-n-Dash

MARQUETTE — Marquette won three events and Westwood two at the annual Splash-n-Dash high school swimming and diving meet held at Marquette Senior High School on Saturday.

Though team scores weren’t kept, Sault Ste. Marie had the most success winning, taking five girls and three boys events as 16 events total were held.

Marquette got a win in the girls 100-yard individual medley when senior Jayme Winn swam in a victorious time of 1 minute, 7.00 seconds.

For the boys, Redmen freshman Liam McFarren won the 50 butterfly in 28.26 seconds, less than two-tenths of a second ahead of Kingsford’s John Lundholm.

McFarren also swam with Marquette’s winning 200 free relay team that clocked 1:40.91 and included freshmen Maverick Baldwin and Quinn Kerekes and sophomore Bobby Caron.

“Although Marquette only won three events, our depth was quite incredible,” MSHS head coach Nathan McFarren said. “In almost every event we had four or five swimmers in the top 10. This depth will be crucial to our success at the end of the year.”

Westwood swept the diving as the girls’ event was won by junior Avery Mariuzza with 145.10 points and the boys by senior Brock Sundberg with 205.25.

Other participating schools that had at least one event win were Houghton and Kingsford.
