The Seymour boys and girls swimming and diving teams started the 2013 portion of their season with a bang Thursday, winning 23 of 24 events against Madison.

The girls won every event, including going 1-2-3 in seven of them, in claiming a 145-38 victory. Madison’s only win was the boys 100 freestyle, but Seymour took the top two spots in five events and won 126-57.

“I thought we had a pretty good break of training,” Owls coach Dave Boggs said. “We are swimming very tired right now. We had a lot of kids right on their times. Some were faster. Some had nice drops tonight, and some where a little bit off tonight.”

Thursday’s meet and Saturday’s meet at Floyd Central will help determine the lineup for upcoming conference meets, Boggs said.

“We haven’t raced for about two and a half weeks, so we’re a little bit rusty with racing,” he said. “We’re trying to get back into race mode again, and we’re trying to get started on the back half of the season. I think they are a little tired from training, and I think they were eager to race again.”
