PREP ROUNDUP: Co-op wins first dual

The DeKalb-Sycamore co-op boys swimming team won its first dual meet of the season on Thursday, defeating Jacobs 115-55.

DeKalb-Sycamore won six individual events, courtesy of Dylan Powers (200 IM, 500 freestyle), Jacob Bjork (200 freestyle), Michael Carlson (100 butterfly), Daniel Hein (100 backstroke) and Tyler Schultz (100 breaststroke).

The co-op also won all three relays – the 200 medley (Hein, Ryan Schultz, Powers and Tyler Schultz), 200 freestyle (Bjork, Carlson, Dylan Powers and Holden Mackey) and 400 freestyle (Mackey, Bjork, Carlson and Hein).

“I think it was extra special, not only to come away with a win but that it was the season opener with a lot of support in the stands,” co-op coach Leah Eames said.
