Janesville Craig picked up two Big Eight Conference boys swimming victories in a triple dual meet Friday.

The Cougars defeated Madison East 109-61 and Beloit 93-77.

“This is a gutsy win,” Craig coach Brian Kitzman said. “They knew going in that Beloit was going to be tough.”

The Cougars were depleted because of illness.

“Their performance was tremendous,” Kitzman said. “We are really pleased how the guys performed.”

Peter Loftus and Travis Reese led the way for the Cougars with two individual event wins.

Loftus won the 200 (1:55.64) and 500 freestyle (5:17.40) events.

Reese won the 100 freestyle (54.02) and 100 backstroke (1:00.92).

Craig participates in the Parker Relays today.
