Buckhannon Splashers short-handed in road dual meet with Morgantown Barracudas

MORGANTOWN – Due to camps and other summer events, the Buckhannon Splashers took a pair of short-handed teams with them to Morgantown when they faced off against the Club Mountaineer Aquatics Barracudas last Tuesday.

On the boy’s side only nine swimmers were able to make the trip.

Despite the low numbers, the boys still won 12 events.

They won five events in the 15-18-year old division.

Dane Ammons won three events – the 50-yard backstroke, the 50-yard breaststroke and the 100-yard freestyle.

Two boys-mixed relay teams in that age group won.

The foursome of Dane Ammons, Rhet Ammons, McKenzie Reynolds and Preston Bennett won both the 200-yard freestyle and medley relays.

In the 13-14-year-old division, they claimed five more individual titles.

Preston Bennett won the 50-yard freestyle, the 100-yard freestyle and the 100-yard IM while Blake Roessing won the 50-yard backstroke and the 50-yard butterfly.

The other two wins belonged to Brody Jeran in the 9-10-year-old division in the 25-yard backstroke and Garrett Shay in the U8 25-yard butterfly.

The boy’s came up just short in the team standings, dropping a 128-114 verdict.

On the girls side, only six swimmers were able to make the meet.

Those six claimed eight wins.

McKenzie Reynolds won three events in the 15-18-year-old division, taking first in the 50-yard backstroke, the 50-yard breaststroke and the 100-yard freestyle.
