Middleton’s boys swimming team finished in third place at the 20-team Madison Invitational held at the UW-Natatorium last Saturday.

Madison Memorial won the event with 465 points. Madison West was second at 258.5 and Middleton was third at 193.

“Every swimmer on the team was excited and ready to race,” Middleton coach Sam Niesen said. “We also had quite a few time drops this meet due to some swimmers being half-tapered as well as a great meet atmosphere.”

Cardinals’ sophomore Michael Draves was fourth in the 200-yard freestyle and fifth in the 500-yard freestyle.

Senior Jacob Aegerter was fourth in the 100-yard butterfly and sophomore Luke Delaney was seventh. Aegerter was also eighth in the 200-yard IM.

Middleton senior Jack Zocher finished fifth in the one-meter diving category and senior Ethan Lengfeld was sixth in the 100-yard breaststroke.

The Cardinals’ 200-yard freestyle relay team of Aegerter, Delaney, senior Dean Zillner and Draves was fifth.

Middleton’s 400-yard freestyle relay team of Aegerter, Delaney, junior Max Hollfelder and Draves was seventh.

And the Cardinals’ 200-yard medley relay team of junior Erick Grelle, Lengfeld, junior Isaac Hanson and Zocher was ninth.

“The boys are certainly getting geared-up for the last few championship meets remaining,” Niesen said. “Overall, it was another great meet and I'm happy with how everyone is looking in the water, so we should be in a great position if we follow through the end of the season.”

• JV meet: Middleton also finished in third place at the Big Eight Conference JV meet last Thursday.

Madison Memorial won the meet with 656 points, while Madison West (552) and Middleton (425) rounded out the top three.

“JV Conference went extremely well,” Niesen said. “We had a 98% time drop and right around 90% best lifetime swims. I was proud of every one of the boys. They worked hard to get to this point and it all paid off.”

Junior Matthew Leiferman won the 100-yard freestyle, while freshman Thomas Griffith was fifth and senior Seth Gutzmer was 10th. Leiferman was also sixth in the 50-yard freestyle.

Sophomore Jacob Trepczyk was second in the 100-yard butterfly, while freshman Michael Madoch was eighth.

Senior Jens Calderon was third in the 500-yard freestyle, while sophomore Drake Demitrios was ninth.

Mondi was seventh in the 100-yard breaststroke, sophomore Timmy Utter was eighth and Calderon was ninth.

Senior Jake Hollfelder was also seventh in the 200-yard freestyle.

Middleton’s 200-yard freestyle relay team of Gutzmer, Mondi, Griffith and Leiferman was second in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

The Cardinals’ 400-yard freestyle relay team of Grelle, Griffith, sophomore Jack Wilson and Leiferman was third.
