PREP BOYS SWIMMING: Raiders battle to eighth-place state finish

(Continued)

Stoller was pleased with his pair of Top Eight finishes.

“This was a fantastic day,” he said. “I made both of my goals. I could not be any happier.”

One of the Northridge youngsters was freshman Spencer Lehman who took seventh in the 200 freestyle (1:41.59) and fifth in the 500 free (4:34.72).

“It was pretty cool to come down here and place like that,” he said. “I wanted a Top Eight in the 500 and a Top 16 in the 200.

“This was a great experience. I got to talk to a lot of the older guys. They gave me some good advice and a lot of encouragement. I can’t wait for next year. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of years. My goals are to swim faster and place higher.”

As one of the youngsters he felt right at home with the rest of the team.

“Everybody was great,” Lehman said. “We had a lot of guys here cheering us on. I am proud to be a part of this team.”

Also for the Raiders, senior Taylor Berkey was 15th in diving (390.15 points), sophomore Seth Cripe 13th in the 200 freestyle (1:43.76) and 16th in the 500 free (4:44.60) and freshman Camden Koch 12th in 100 backstroke (53.01).

Koch, Stoller, sophomore Jeremy Burbrink and senior Takoda Friesen placed sixth in 200 medley relay (1:35.34). Lehman, Friesen, Cripe and Stoller were 10th in the 400 free relay (3:10.36).

“For Lehman to come in here and have two Top Eight finishes is great,”Keller said. “Koch, Cripe and Burbrink also had good meets.

“Now it is going to be all about doing the hard work and investing the time in the sport. If we do those things we could have a pretty special group here in a couple of years.”

Junior Liuz DeMiranda Leao, junior Liam O’Neill, freshman Erik Kruip and junior Williams Riblet were 29th 200 medley relay (1:40.30) and senior Brad Whitehead, junior Conner Flora, junior DeMiranda Leao and Riblet 15th in 200 free relay (1:28.75) for Elkhart Central.

Riding in his 10th Tour, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia won his first Tour stage behind savvy racing, well-paced riding and the absence of his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank leader Alberto Contador. The Spaniard crashed out in Stage 10, inadvertently freeing up Rogers to go after the stage win.
