Austin Clayton placed third in the 100 breast in 1:26.43.

Tell City won nine of 12 events in a meet at Heritage Hills Thursday but lost 91-79 because the Patriots had more depth. Swim meets score five places in each event.

Bower won the 50 free in 24.35 and Nelson took the 100 free in 55.90.

Bolin won the diving with 24.30 points on just one dive. The diving was suspended after that because of a loose bolt in the board.
