The Oregon boys swimming team set two school records and won 10 of 11 events during the Panthers’ 117-42 dual win over Mount Horeb on Tuesday, Jan. 17, in Oregon. 

The 200-meter freestyle relay team of junior Spencer Stluka, sophomore Finnley Conklin, senior Josh Weber and senior Jack Christiansen clocked in with a time of 1 minute, 43.73 seconds – resetting the school record that was set last week.

Conklin also claimed the program record in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:05.46.

Both Conklin and the 200 free relay team finished first in their respective events. Stluka and Conklin also picked up one more individual victory each with Stluka winning the 200 free (2:17.32) and Conklin capturing the 100 butterfly (1:00.63).

Seniors Oliver Wiedemann and Mason Konopacki finished first in the 200 IM (2:34.75) and 50 free (25.4), respectively. Freshman Noah Mora took home the 400 free title with a time of 5:31.92.

Oregon’s 400 freestyle relay team of Wiedemann, Christiansen, Vincent Tönder and Roshan Bonick clocked in at 4:22.12 to win the event.

“The final race of the night featured all 12 of our seniors,” Oregon head coach Justin Sawran said. “We tried to make three somewhat even relay teams, and ultimately the team of Oliver Wiedemann, Jack Christiansen, Vincent Tönder and Roshan Bonick ended up victorious.”

Mount Horeb’s lone win came from Charles Olson in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:10.73. Mount Horeb was in a long-standing co-op with Verona until this season.

“Mount Horeb has a small team, but each of their team members are solid swimmers,” Sawran said. With more numbers they would be a team to watch.”
