On Friday night the Trenton boys’ swim team did as the Trenton swim team does and dominated the competition to win yet another Downriver League title.

It was the eight year the Trojans have won or shared the title. Two seasons ago they shared with Roosevelt.

The Trojans doubled their first-place finishes from last season, finishing with six top times and blew away the competition.

Trenton was the top team with 798 points, topping second-place Roosevelt by 237 points. Roosevelt finished with 561 points followed by Woodhaven in third with 421 points.

Carlson-Anderon (293), Allen Park (284), Taylor Co-Op (191) and Lincoln Park (112) rounded out the night’s scoring.

The night was full of state cuts and DRL record swims.

Trenton won all three relays.

The night started with a win in the 200 medley from Johnny Diehl, Adam Mulka, Dane Roberts and Alex Ginn who finished in 1:44.68.

Mulka and Ginn later joined Thomas Wolsek and David O’Donnell in the 200 free to finish with a state cut time of 1:31.25. To cap the night, Wolsek, Diehl and O’Donnell teamed with Vincenzo Guglielmetti to take the 400 free with a state cut time of 3:23.97.

Individually, O’Donnell swam a state cut in the 200 free, and finished with a new DRL record time of 1:48.28.

Mulka finished with his own DRL record and state cut in the 100 breast with a swim of 1:02.67 and Guglielmetti made a state cut by taking first in the 500 free in 5:11.01.

Second-place Roosevelt gained 102 extra points in the diving well when the team went one through five in the event.

Garrid Blair took the top diving spot with a score of 424.30.

Individually, the Bears had the only double-winner of the day in Collin Olson. The senior finished the 100 fly in 55.18 and swam a state cut and new DRL record in the 50 free with his finish of 21.85.

Carlson-Anderon was led by two individual winners.

Matt Anderson took the 100 free with a finish of 49.69 and Thomas Jozwiak took the 100 back in 57.71.

Host Allen Park was led by Tommy Lareau who swam to a first-place finish with a state cut in the 200 IM. He finished in 2:09.49.
