Score: Rockford 193, Grand Haven 115

After defeating Grand Haven by more than 60 points in a non-conference meet before the holidays, the Rams saw history repeat itself on January 28 as they once again overwhelmed the Buccaneers, 193-115.

From the first event to the last, Rockford out-swam Grand Haven.

A prime example came in the 200-yard IM when Bryan Wasberg (2:03.93), Derik Bothma (2:09.35), Trenten Babcock (2:09.36) and Jeff Schmitt (2:09.52) placed first, second, third and fourth, respectively.

Another example was the 500-yard freestyle in which Schmitt (5:16.62, a personal best), Brian Ginebaugh (5:18.75), and Nick Willison (5:20.08) placed first, second and third.

“Now our sites are set on the West Ottawa meet,” said senior Andrew Denhof.

Don’t miss the Thursday, Feb. 4 meet, as Rockford and West Ottawa will swim/dive in an anticipated close meet.
