SECTION IV BOYS SWIMMING: OWEGO DRAWS SIX TOP-10 SEEDS FOR CLASS B MEET (2021-02-26)

Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO — Senior Eric Theal and junior Adam Gault will lead Owego into the Section IV Class B Boys Swimming and Diving Championships here this evening.

In the only Section IV postseason event to be held during the coronavirus pandemic up to this point, sectionals will be held virtually in each participating team's pool.

While the Indians won't have other team's competitors to push them, the majority of their highest-seeded events posted their best times in the Owego waters.

According to www.section4swim.com, all three relays are seeded fourth, as is Gault in the 200-yard freestyle. Theal is seeded ninth in the 200 individual medley and the 100 butterfly.

Gault swam a 2:04.73 in the 200 free at Oneonta Jan. 238. He is also seeded 18th in the 100 butterfly without a seed time.

Theal posted a time of 2:29.83 in the 200 IM at Oneonta and a 1:09.09 in the 100 fly at Owego Feb. 5.

Gault and Theal were part of the Indians' fastest 200 medley relay, 200 free relay and 400 free relay squads. Sophomores Tyler Krom and Gabe Snyder rounded out the relay quartets.

On Feb. 5, Owego posted a time of 1:59.97 in the medley relay and 3:58.31 in the 400 free. Their 200 free relay time was established Jan. 22.

Swimmers may only compete in four events and no more than two relays. The decision on which events they will enter can be made at meet time.

The meet begins at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on the district's YouTube channel — https://www.youtube.com/user/OwegoYouSchools.
