Repmo Swimmers Set Four New Bests

Republic swimmers set four season bests, including two relay times, at the Friday Fights swim meet in Springfield Friday.

Republic’s best finish of the night came in their last event: the 400-yard freestyle relay. Easton Bruton, Seth Lock, Shael Wilson, and Bryce Martin finished seventh, with a time of 3:54.54. That bettered Republic’s previous best time in the event by 2.16 seconds.

In the 200-yard freestyle relay, the same four swimmers (Wilson, Bruton, Martin, and Lock) shaved .59 seconds off their previous best time. They finished in 1:47.12, taking 10th.

Bryce Martin finished eighth in the 200-yard freestyle and finished nearly three seconds ahead of his previous best time, in 2:08.14.

In the 100-yard backstroke, Shael Wilson finished in 1:17.11, bettering his old fastest time by 1.23 seconds.
