Last night, the boys swim and dive team competed in the 25th annual FH Invitational. The Invitational consisted of five teams that were fierce competitors. The Rangers were able to win their nineteenth title by finishing first with 666.5 points, just ahead of Midland Dow with 656. FHC and Midland Dow were going back and forth the whole Invitational, but the Rangers were able to come out on top.

Senior Henry Schutte was the only one to capture any event titles, as he took first in the 200-yard Freestyle with a time of 1:44.02 and in the 100-yard Butterfly with a time of 52.79. Sophomore Avery LeTourneau continued to show his sheer determination in this meet; he was able to place second in the 200-yard Individual Medley with a time of 2:06.59, and he placed second in the 500-yard Freestyle with a time of 5:09.87. Senior Charlie Krug touched second in the 100-yard Freestyle with a time of 51.27 and third in the 50-yard Freestyle with a time of 23.57. Leading the divers was senior Ryan Talbot, who had a personal-best score of 383.25 for a third-place finish. Freshmen Will Becker and Cole Hysong placed sixth and seventh, respectively.

FHC has been training very hard during the holiday break and this Invitational truly showed the hard work paying off. This meet does not go towards the Rangers’ OK White conference record, so their record remains at 1-0. The boys swim and dive team’s goal is still to improve on skills and times, but to also peak for the championship meets in late February and early March. FHC next faces off against Grand Rapids Christian on Tuesday for a conference meet.
