Sturgis’ boys swimming and diving team had a strong showing at its own A&K Relays Tuesday, finishing second to Marshall.
Sturgis won three events, including the 400-yard medley relay (4:20.07) quartet of Daniel Tetzloff, Brandon Jones, Nathan Stemen and Grant Brown.
“It was a very close meet tonight and even though we did not win I was still really pleased with the way the boys did tonight,” Sturgis coach Andy Feyes said.
A staple of the A&K Relays, which have been contested for 33 years, is the under/over relay — an event the Trojans had never lost entering Tuesday. The Trojans again defended their title, with Brown, Jones, Tetzloff and Hunter Stanke clocking in at 1:51.86.
The team of Tetzloff, Jones, Stemen and Brown also won the 400 individual medley relay with a time of 4:20.07. In diving, the tandem of Dylan DeYoung and Kris Gibbs finished runner-up with a score of 366.10. Stanke, Trever Sprowls, Jones and David Polzin took second in the 200 breaststroke relay.
The Trojans will be back in the pool on Thursday night at 6 p.m. at home against Marshall.
