Sutton broke another Kantner record, the 200 free, on Saturday in Celina.

The new school record came during the Wapakoneta Redskins’ two wins Thursday in a high school boys swim meet against the St. Marys Roughriders and the Coldwater Cavaliers.

Wapak handled St. Marys, 60-33, and routed Coldwater, 67-21.

Sam Harrod was third behind Miller in the 50 free (26.70) and the 100 free (58.37).

Ryan Schneider (1:00.41) and Michael Zwez (1:04.36) posted the top two times in the 100 butterfly.
Schneider (1:03.26) and Zwez (1:03.65) were also first and second in the 100 backstroke.

The quartet of Ruedebusch, Miler, Harrod and Sutton grabbed the win in the 200 free relay with a time of 1:38.49.

Miller, Hayden Metzger, Ruedebusch and Sutton won the 400 free relay at 3:43.32.

Metzger was second in the 200 individual medley (2:20.28) and second behind Sutton’s school record in the 500 free (5:29.64).

Sutton (1:13.31) was second in the 100 breaststroke.

This was Wapak’s final meet before the Western Buckeye League Championships.
