Elkhorn’s boys swim team won Janesville Craig’s Cougar Relays on Saturday.

The Elks won nine of the 11 events to finish with 188 points. Greenfield was second, followed by Janesville Parker (104) and Janesville Craig (94).

Hunter Johnson, Mark Ambrose, Spencer Ingersoll, Derek Gauger, Willy Pinnow and Lucas Koepke were each part of four winning relays for Elkhorn.

Parker took second in three events, a 400-yard medley relay, the 200-yard freestyle relay and a 200-yard butterfly relay.

“Based on my expectations here at the start of the season and how the guys are already swimming, I’m very excited to see how the season goes,” Vikings coach Eric Rhodes said. “I think a lot of these guys are ahead of schedule and really rose to the occasion today.”

Craig had second-place finishes in the 400 free style relay and the finale rocket relay.

“I was very happy with what we saw after the amount of energy we used up last night,” said Craig coach Mike Schuenke, one day after the Big Eight Conference season opened with dual meets. “Seeing them enjoy themselves at a fun meet after last night was exactly what we needed.”

The city teams are back in conference action Friday, with Craig hosting Madison West and Sun Prairie and Parker swimming at Verona.
