The Benedictine Swim Team started the season in winning form on Saturday. The Bengals won a 10 team invitational – The Rocket Relays – hosted by Bay High School. The meet consisted of eight relay events so the team’s depth was vital. In fact, our entire team scored points! Other teams included Rocky River, Westlake, Avon, Avon Lake, North Royalton, Bay Village, and North Olmsted.
Benedictine finished first in three events: In a 500 Free Relay distance event—Tom Pacak, Charlie Spinks, Max Rudmann and Anthony Piazza took honors. The 400 Free Relay Team of Alex Vanek, Max Rudmann, Brendan Peterson and Tom Pacak received gold.
Best of all, the 200 Fly Relay (each swimmer did a 50 yard butterfly) was won by Max Rudmann, Brendan Peterson, Anthony Brown and Alex Vanek. This team set a new meet record for the event. Congratulations to all.
The team opens its dual meet season next Tuesday, December 10th at Cleveland Heights beginning at 6 pm.
