Thursday, January 24, 2008

BAINBRIDGE -- The North Putnam swim teams hosted a triangular meet Wednesday night and saw mixed results. The Cougar boys defeated Tri-West and Fountain Central in a close contest. However, the Cougar girls finished third to their guests.

The North boys scored 113 points to edge Tri-West's 110. Fountain Central was not far behind with 96.

The highlight of the evening came from the Cougar 200 freestyle relay team of Jon Taggart, Patrick Byrd, Jeremy Ban and Kyle Smith, which set a new school record in the event with a 1:39.08. The old record of 1:40.92 had stood for 11 years.

The medley relay team of Taggart, Justin Zurawski, Byrd and Smith also won with a 1:55.99.

Smith also won two individual events, taking the 50 free in 24.42 and the 100 free in 55.94.

Byrd had the Cougars' other win with a 1:02.92 in the 100 butterfly.

For the Cougar girls, it was a rough night. Fountain Central won the meet with 136 points and Tri-West was next with 115. The Cougars managed just 65.
