Auten paces swimmers to third at Bonner
Jarred Auten paced the Osawatomie-Paola Boys swim team to a third place finish at Bonner Springs on Wednesday, December 10.
Auten placed first in the 200 meter Individual Medley and the 100 meter Butterfly, and helped the 200 meter Free Relay to place first and the 400 meter Free Relay to place second in the meet.
“I don’t ask many swimmers to enter both the 200 IM and the 100 fly in one meet,” said Head Coach Sarah Dorsett. “It demands a lot of them. However, Jared did not shy away from it and really attacked it. He won both events plus swims in two relays.”
The boys placed third in the meet, behind Blue Valley High School and Olathe Northwest, host Bonner Springs, Turner and Washington-Sumner rounded out the competition.
Overall, Dorsett was pleased with the results, given the fact that the swimmers were finishing a stretch of three meets in five days and were battling some illness problems.
“We just had a meet the day before,” Dorsett said. “We had three meets in five days, but sometimes its good to be tested mentally like that. We might have come close to second place had we been at full strength.”
The Osawatomie-Paola Boys wrap up the pre-Christmas portion of their schedule with meet tonight (Thursday, December 18) at the Miami County YMCA Pool in Osawatomie.
