The bitter colds did not stop the Riverview and Taylor Co-op teams from getting in the water on Tuesday and the Bucs improved their record to 5-1 with a 113-62 victory.

The Bucs took nine of the night’s events, including two relays.

The meet started with a first-place finish in the 200 medley relay when Alex Guthrie, Dakota Roehler, Nicolas Guthrie and Morgen Gardocki finished in 1:47.65.

The Guthrie brothers and Roehler later joined with Caleb Menna to take first in the 400 free as well.

Individually, Roehler was first in the 100 free, Austin Irving took the 200 free, Keith Stockely was tops in the 100 fly and Nolan Rochon was a double-winner in the 200 IM and 500 free.

Gardocki swam a career-best and a first-place finish in the 50 free (23.86) and Noah Ellington was first in diving with a career-best score of 199.65.

Coach Sean Kelly was also pleased with the performances of Connor Harrison, Conner Jones, James Hyatt, Nathan Smiley, Gary O’Brien and Billy Stimson.

Taylor took the 200 free relay with the team of Brennan Dukes, Troy Busch, James Iraira and Michael Taylor.

Dukes went on to win the 100 back and Busch won the 100 breast.

Coach Brittany Buchanan also saw several other improvements in the pool.

The medley relay (Dukes, Busch, Iraira, Taylor) was second and another medley relay (Muntz, Kolnity, Sharbo, Philpott) was sixth.

Lauren Poletti was fourth in the 200 IM with Jakob Muntz just behind in fifth.

She was also pleased with a fourth-place finish in the 400 free (Szczepanski, Poletti, Maynard, Goins) as well as a fifth-place swim in the same event (Sharbo, McNeal, Furman, Kami).

On Thursday Taylor took to the waters against Milan.

“The competition was tough, but the boys rose to the occasion and worked hard, producing some good times,” Buchannan said.

A standout for Buchanan was a four-five-six finish in the 200 free. Iraira was fourth (2:15), Szczepanski was fifth (2:23) and Philpott was sixth (2:34).
