Whitewater High School boys swimming coach Gina Foucault said great things continued to happen for the team at the Milton Invitational on Dec. 8.

Several athletes won races and recorded best times.

Whitewater earned medals in 11 events, including three first-place finishes.

Placing first was Jack Mayer in the 50- and 100-yard freestyles. He also joined Shawn Chan, Devin Bazeley and Michael Kuhl in winning the 400-yard freestyle relay.

Whitewater athletes also established personal best times in 13 races. And three Whippets did so in two events each: Wesley Salverson and Jovany Manriquez accomplished the feat in the 200-yard free and 100-yard breaststroke, while Chan did so in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.

Bazeley also finished with two top 10 all-time efforts for Whitewater, as he currently sits sixth in the 200-yard individual medley and eighth in the 100-yard butterfly.

“Jovany Manriquez dropped 50 seconds off his 200 freestyle practice time,” Foucault said. “Zach Tomomitsu raced well with the addition of some nice block starts and by using flip-turns at all walls. Michael Kuhl raced hard into the 100 backstroke finish, touching out the fourth-place finisher by just .06 seconds with a great finish.

“Jack Mayer continues to put in strong races, winning both of his individuals and a relay. The boys are really practicing well, and we are really seeing some great improvements from just a week ago.”

The Whippets hosted a dual against Burlington on Tuesday and will compete at Beloit Memorial on Saturday.
