Prep Swimming: FHS swimmers cruise on Senior Night
Findlay High School's swimming and diving program honored its 14 seniors Monday night at the University of Findlay's Sink Natatorium.

And the Trojans sent them out in style by easily sweeping a pair of nonconference dual meets from Marion Harding.

Findlay's girls team rolled to a 148-21 win over the Presidents while the Trojans took care of Marion Harding in the boys meet 128-53.

"We have a large graduating class and this was the second to last dual meet for some very good swimmers and divers. This is always an emotional night for coaches and the seniors and their families," said Findlay High School swim coach Jeff Wobser, whose team won every event. "We had some very good swims tonight so it was a very enjoyable evening."

Senior Zam Zoll led a the list of multiple winners in the girls meet for the Trojans. She teamed with Octavia Homka, Lauren Klingel and Laura Wilson to win the 200 medley relay (2:14.22). She captured the 100 freestyle (1:17.49) individually.

Homka scored a second relay win as she joined Kendra Konecny, Sydney Hodges and Hannah McClellan to win the 400 free relay (4:36.72). Wilson and Konecny were also double relay winners as they teamed with Ashley Lewis and Abigail Spitler to win the 200 free relay (2:01.73).

Lewis added an individual win in the 200 free (2:11.65) and Hodges made it two wins by taking the 50 free (31.24).

Kyle Hopkins was a triple winner to lead Findlay's dominance in the boys meet.

Hopkins won the 100 breaststroke (1:05.41) individually. He teamed with Colin Schmidt, Dietrich Hinesman and Luke Taylor to win the 200 medley (1:57.03) and joined Tucker Stocker, Schmidt and Hinesman to take the 400 free relay (3:50.94).

Hinesman also picked up a third win as a member of a relay as he joined Stocker, Trent Shaffer and Jeremy Wilson to win the 200 free relay (1:45.97).

Grant Weickert wrapped up the list of multiple winners for the Trojans by taking the 200 individual medley (2:30.42) and 100 backstroke (1:05.14).

Findlay will wrap up the dual meet portion of its schedule Wednesday when the Trojans host Upper Sandusky, Fostoria and Fostoria St. Wendelin in a make-up quadrangular meet that was postponed by snowy weather over the holidays.
