Swim teams opens season

The first outing of the season for the Quincy swim team saw 15-year-old Gates Petersen and 14-year-old Brynn Nieuwenhuis win high point honors. Both won all three of their individual events at the Quincy Aquatic Center last Thursday against Leavenworth.

Petersen placed first in the 50-yard freestyle (25.27 seconds), 100-freestyle (58.51) and the 100-individual medley (1:10.74), while Nieuwenhuis won the 100IM (11.05), 50-butterfly (36.49) and 50-breaststroke (42.40). Both had times comparable to where they finished last season.
The most improvement came from Kellen, Aidan and Liam Wallace. The brothers all sliced, slashed and cut time from their 2014 best times. Kellen, 13, placed fourth in all of his events and cut a total of 23 seconds. He had a time of 48.03 in the 50-breast, and a time of 49.29 in the 50-back. But his most impressive improvement came in the 100-free, where he went from a 1:42.85 all the way down to a 1:29.08. Aidan placed second in the 50-breast (53.16), third in the 100-free (1:41.85) and fifth in the 50-free (43.41), while Liam was fourth in the 50-back at 60.08.
Emily Linscott, 8, dropped 13 seconds in the 50-fly. She came in with a time of 39.16, but posted a time of 26.13 and took first place. She also was third in the 25-free (26.93) and third in the 50-free (59.89).
