Medley sweep, PR for Dubuc lead HNHS boys' swimmers to win

A sweep in the 200-meter individual medley and a personal best in diving by Casey Dubuc helped the Huntington North High School boys' swim team to a 99-86 victory over host Bluffton on Tuesday, Feb. 10.

Skyler Ruschhaupt, Chris Royer and Taylor Mortorff did the 1-2-3 thing, respectively, for HNHS in the 200 IM, with Ruschhaupt winning in 2:18.19.

Ruschhaupt also won the 100-meter breaststroke, and was part of two winning relay teams. Shaun Marion also had two individual wins and two relay victories.

Dubuc earned 240.45 points in the diving for his personal best, and six points for HNHS. Just for good measure, he swam the leadoff leg on the winning 200-meter freestyle relay team.

Phillip Zook, Josh Bush and Royer swam the other legs, and the team came home in 1:54.95.

Marion further aided the HNHS cause by winning the 200-meter freestyle, in 2:14.52, and the 400-meter freestyle, in 4:41.84.

Marion, Royer and Danny Scher teamed with Ruschhaupt to win the 200-meter medley relay, in 1:59.06, and Marion, Ryan Rethlake and Scher swam the other three legs on the winning 400-meter freestyle relay team, which came home in 4:02.68.

Scher added a first in the 100-meter freestyle.

Additional points for HNHS came from the third place 200 medley relay team, Dubuc's third place in the 50 free, Royer placing second in the 100-meter butterfly and a third place finish in the 400 free relay.
