Otters splash Water Jets

Bryan Veginski

Morton tamed rival Washington, 806-625, in a June 30 swim meet.

The visitors did not have enough firepower to overcome nine Otters winning at least two events.

Colton Paulson and Spencer McGowan were three-time winners for the Morton boys.

Paulson, in the 8-and-under division, was first in the 50 freestyle in :45.03, the 100 individual medley in 1:47.09 and the 25 butterfly in :27.25.

McGowan achieved top billing in the 50 free in :30.65, the 100 IM in 1:21.85 and the 50 fly in :35.40.

Keegan Paulson (50 free, 100 IM), Joe Zern (25 free, 25 backstroke), Ryan Wood (50 free, 50 back) and Garrett Kindred (50 free, 100 IM) all were victorious twice on the boys’ side.

For the girls, Natalie Zobrist (50 free, 50 breaststroke), Grace Jankowski (50 free, 100 IM) and Jenna Zbinden (50 breast, 50 fly) prevailed two times apiece.

Also winning for the girls were: Anelise Imig, Kelly Schaffnit, Megan Weeks, Bridget Elward, Magen Monson, Abigail Dryden, Jessica Rajkumar, Shelby Zbinden and Courtney Jones.

Boys victors included: Andrew Dryden, Bradyn Thompson, Austin Bradford, Lucas Zbinden and Jordan Schertz.

The Otters defeated the Water Jets in 10 relays, including six in the medley format.
