Indians move to 2-2 on the season
OTTUMWA — The Oskaloosa boys swimming team made their way to the Ottumwa Beach on Tuesday for a triangular with the Bulldogs and Big Reds from Centerville, leaving with a split.
Senior Landon Briggs and freshman Jackson Phillips-Sisul both had strong nights for the Indians.
Briggs had lifetime-best swims all of his events including a 24.99 in the 50 free and a 58.05 in the 100 free.
“After taking a year off from swimming and just coming off of an ankle injury I am super proud of these times so early in the season,” Oskaloosa head coach Rachel Brown said. “I look forward to Landon continuing to improve as he pushes himself throughout the season.”
Phillips-Sisul showed off his versatility by racing in the distance events, racing to third in the 200 and second in the 500.
“Jackson, is beinging to show that he is a very versatile swimmer,” Brown said. “No matter what events I put him in he takes them with stride. He did exactly that last night in the 200 yard freestyle and 500 yard freestyle. These are the two longest events in a swim meet and he went out and competed in some great swimming.”
Oskaloosa is back at it on Saturday when they go to Grinnell.
