H.S. SWIMMING: Model tops Central and Southern in first meet of season

RICHMOND — The Model swim teams accomplished something Thursday in their first meet of the year that they couldn’t do all last year.

The Patriots finished first in a four-team meet at the EKU natatorium at Alumni Coliseum against their cross-county rivals Madison Central and Madison Southern as well as Rockcastle County.

Model claimed the top spot with a combined team total of 218 points. Madison Central finished second with a combined score of 174, Madison Southern was third with 101 and Rockcastle County fourth with 77 points.

First-year Model Coach Reinhardt Strijdom said the result was a nice surprise.

“It was good to see the kids so happy. They didn’t win a single meet last year so to start the season and beat all three teams is pretty awesome,” Strijdom said. “We worked hard but just looking at last year’s result I would have been happy if we beat one or two of the teams, but to beat Madison Central especially feels real good.”

The Madison Central girls claimed the tops spot in the girls competition with a team total of 125. Model was second with 77 points, while Madison Southern was third with 54 points and Rockcastle fourth with 46 points.

Model claimed the boys title with a team total of 141 points. Central was second with 49 points, Southern third with 47 points and Rockcastle fourth with 31 points.

Central Coach Rich Livingston said he too was pleased with his kids effort in their first meet of the year.

“I think our kids did an excellent job. They came out motivated and they worked together. They had not swam together as a group before, so coming together and pulling for each other and taking time to give each other support and feedback is important to me,” Livingston said. “We are in great shape. We need to recruit a few boy swimmers, but otherwise we are in good shape. We’ve got a good group.”
