Swim boys

Swimmers start a freestyle race during the Edwardsville-O'Fallon High School dual meet at the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center Tuesday in Edwardsville.

O’Fallon nipped Edwardsville High School’s boys swim team 88-81 on Tuesday night at the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center in Edwardsville, despite several strong performances by the Tigers.

“It was a super close meet; we just lost by seven points,” Tigers’ coach Christian Rhoten said. “A lot of it comes down to sheer numbers of swimmers. We have just 14 on the team so every person plays a huge part in every single meet.”

Two seniors Jake Gremaud and Peter Byers both had exceptional races in their first place performances,” Rhoten said.

Kenny Stryker, Tyler Morris, Brian Baggette and Graham Peterson also were strong contributors on Tuesday night, Rhoten said.
