Stillwater High swimming starts season with a win over Booker T. Washington

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater Pioneers and Lady Pioneers swimming teams got a good idea of their progress as they tested the waters against Booker T. Washington Thursday at the Stillwater Family YMCA.

“We got some work ahead of us,” Stillwater coach Kurt Goebel said. “We did OK. There are some areas we need to work on. It was good for us to see those areas we need to improve.”

The Lady Pioneers beat the Lady Hornets 146-107 while the Pioneers won 183-100. Mac Johnson said he felt the boys performed well despite not having as much time to practice due to pool renovations.

“I thought we did pretty well,” Johnson said. “We had two and a half weeks where we weren’t able to get into the pool and lost that time. ... (YMCA) were resurfacing. So they had to refill it.”

The Lady Pioneers won the 200-meter medley, 200-meter freestyle and 400-meter freestyle relays. Sydney Goad said the relay times were good for the first meet but there’s room to improve.

“One of our relays we are only four seconds off from our state time last year,” Goad said. “I think we will improve on that in the next couple of meets.”

Alex Thomas won the 200-meter freestyle (2:24.46) and the 100-meter freestyle (1:05.69). Kelsey Haseley finished third (2:34.91). Haseley also finished second in the 100-meter butterfly (1:25.35). Brooke Njaa won the 200-meter individual medley (2:51.12) and the 100-meter breaststroke (1:25.62). Goad won the 50-meter freestyle (29.54) and the 100-meter backstroke (1:16.57). Kayla Dunn finished third (32.56). The freshman also finished second in the 100-meter freestyle (1:11.59) Savannah Hudon finished third in the 100-meter butterfly (1:26.62) Lauren Terry won the 400-meter freestyle (5:21.84) and finished second in the 100-meter backstroke (1:21.50).

Samantha Schroeder finished third in the 400-meter freestyle (6:03.85).

The Pioneers also won all three relays and won most of the individual events.

Francisco Ochoa won the 200-meter freestyle (2:08.41) and the 100-meter freestyle (57.85). Trey Cushing finished third in the 200-meter freestyle. Johnson won the 200-meter individual medley (2:27.13) and the 400-meter freestyle (4:46.32).

“I felt good about my 200 IM,” Johnson said. “I dropped a second.”

Matthew Tree finished second in the 200-meter individual medley (2:32.16) and second in the 100-meter backstroke (1:08.41). Jesse Ogle finished second in the 50-meter freestyle (27.67). Kyle Goebel finished third in the 50-meter freestyle (28.51) and third in the 100-meter freestyle (1:03.69). Blake Payne won the 100-meter butterfly (1:07.12).

Charles Clark finished second in the 100-meter butterfly (1:08.34) and won the 100-meter backstroke (1:08.16). Layne Njaa finished third in the 100-meter butterfly (1:13.21). Nate Carmen finished second in the 400-meter freestyle (4:50.19) and second in the 100-meter breaststroke (1:18.28). Ben Cowles finished third in the 400-meter freestyle (5:03.33). Tommy Hall finished third in the 100-meter breaststroke (1:21.69).

“I think Mac Johnson had a good swim,” Goebel said. “I know the two kids in the backstroke had a good swim as well — Charles Clark and Matthew Tree. Alex Thomas and Sydney Goad were very solid. I’m excited about Kayla Dunn. She is a freshman girl that I think we can do a lot with.”

The Pioneers and Lady Pioneers compete at Ponca City next Thursday.
