The DeKalb-Sycamore co-op boys swim team came away with a dominating victory over Fenton, 139-25, on senior night.

“Just the fact that this was senior night and we came up with such a big win was the cherry on top of a great season,” coach Leah Eames said. “The seniors had that little extra bit of fire, motivation and energy.”

Marc Dubrick won the 200-yard freestyle and 500 free while Daniel Hein took first in the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke. Ryan Schultz was also a double-winner, placing first in the 100 free and 100 backstroke.

Austin Bockman won the 50 free while Jacob Bjork took first in the 100 butterfly.

The co-op swept all three relays as well. Dubrick, Schultz, Hein and Josh Page combined to win the 200 medley relay while Dylan Powers, Holden Mackey, Bjork and Page took first in the 200 free relay. Mackey Matt Marchewka, Schultz and Hein also took first in the 400 free.

DeKalb is now 10-0 in dual meets with one remaining next week.


Barbs fall to Marengo: DeKalb lost its final regular-season match to Marengo by a mere 21 pins, 3,429-3,408.

The Barbs were led by Ranzy Collins, who bowled a 655 series, including games of 238 and 244. Seth Pinne also had a 611 series with a single-game high score of 225. Sean Zarek had the Barbs’ high game with a 256.
