Kokomo’s boys swimming team put forth a dominant effort Wednesday night against an undermanned Marion squad, winning 11 events in a 145-23 victory over the Giants.

Nathan Banush led the Wildkats (2-0 in dual meets) as a triple winner. He won the 200 individual medley in 2:18.95, teamed with Logan Hawk, Alex Whiteman and Caleb Cook to win the 200 medley relay in 1:53.90, and joined with Blake Brookshire, Josh Church and Phillip Heilman to win the 200 free relay in 1:42.43.

Hawk was tops in the 200 free in 2:01.58. Church won the 50 free in :26.27. And Brookshire topped the field in the 100 backstroke in 1:11.09.

Adam Harding won the 100 butterfly in 1:06.41, then teamed with Colton Pratt, Brian Harding and Joey Rodriguez to win the 400 free relay in 4:19.80.

Jake Delrymple added a victory in diving (134.10), while Jake Benzinger won the 100 free (1:03.79) and Tyler Schorm took a blue ribbon in the 500 free (5:58.95).

“Marion only had three guys, so we were really looking to just get some good times and find some things our before our meet Monday against Western,” Kokomo coach Jay Glick said. “Our guys swam pretty well considering I’ve been hitting them pretty hard training-wise in practices.”
