Tigers win 10 out of the 12 events held Sunday

St. Xavier defeated the Trinity Shamrocks 125-44 in a dual swim meet Sunday afternoon. Individually, the Tigers won 10 out of the 12 events held.

“I thought we swam really well today,” said St. Xavier head coach Todd Larkin. “We have a great team this year and a lot of depth. That came into play today. I think the guys have been working hard in practice. You know it’s a great event. We always enjoy hosting Trinity and I was pleased with the results today.”

The Tigers notched victories in the 200 yard medley relay, 200 yard IM, 50 yard freestyle, 100 yard freestyle, 500 yard freestyle, 200 yard freestyle relay, 100 yard backstroke, 100 yard breaststroke, and the 400 yard freestyle relay. Mitchell Forde won two individual events and two relay events to finish as the top swimmer for the Tigers.

“We didn’t get to swim against Trinity last year,” said Forde. “We were excited about this meet because they’re our archrival. Today we swam well and I was impressed. A lot of our guys have never swum against Trinity in a dual meet. So we as upperclassmen wanted to set an example at the beginning of the meet and the younger guys picked up on it.”

Cooper Thomas won the 200 yard freestyle and the 100 yard butterfly to give the Rocks two wins in the meet.

“We were swimming pretty tired today,” said Trinity head coach Kelly Horrell. “Our main guys have been working pretty hard the last few weeks so they were pretty tired coming into today. St. X looked pretty good. But I think it will be a different meet when we meet up again in regionals and state.”
