Picking up a total of nine first place finishes, including five individual winners, the Orioles were on cruise control from beginning to end in their last home meet of the regular season.

“Since it was senior night they got to choose any event they wanted to swim,” said Ludington swim coach Joe Schneider. “The boys are excited to be in the final stretch of the season, but still giving it all they have.”

Ludington senior Hayden Madl was first in both the 100-yard butterfly (1:12.66) and the 100 backstroke (1:05.79).

Also taking individual victories for the Orioles were Lucas Peterson in the 50 freestyle (25.92), Lucas Miller in the 200 individual medley (2:37.59) and Kyle Wendt in the 100 freestyle (58.26).

Also finishing third were the 400 freestyle team of Slater, Noah Lowman, Owen Forrester and Carter Anderson (5:08.74) and the 200 freestyle relay (Snyder, Smith, Anderson and Miller (1:59.39).
