GAMBIER — Robert Williams and Victor Lowe each chalked up a pair of wins and a pair of second-place finishes, and Casey Miglin added a win to lead the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets swim team to a combined 146-144 win over Big Walnut. Both teams, however, lost to Olentangy Liberty in their Ohio Capital Conference tri-match at the Kenyon Athletic Center in Gambier on Friday.
Williams cruised to first place, as expected, in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 22.97.
“I went to a swimming camp over the summer,” said Williams. “I’ve been working on a lot of freestyle and, I guess, that helps a lot.”
He was a nearly a half second better the Liberty’s Jack Saczawa, who had to settle for second. Liberty defeated Mount Vernon’s combined team, 219-91. It also downed Big Walnut’s combined squad, 235-86.
Williams picked up an individual second place in the 100-yard backstroke, where he clocked in at 1:01.03. Mount Vernon coach Josh Kline put Williams in that event as a challenge, knowing that it was his weakest event, and he responded.
