HIGHLAND | Times No. 2 Munster coach Matt Pavlavich said his Seahorses were ready for the postseason.

Were they ever.

Munster won 11 of 12 events to dominate the Northwest Crossroads Conference meet Saturday afternoon. The Seahorses' 448 was double that of second place Lowell (224). The host Trojans took third with 223 points.

Lowell's Mikki Wood was the only non-Munster swimmer to win an event when she took the 200 free with a time of 2:02.75. Wood, a freshman, also finished second in the 100 free (56.34).

"I was pretty excited to win at my first conference meet," Wood said. "The competition level here is great, and it helped me get up for my events."

Munster's Jillian Homans won both the 50 free (25.45) and the 100 free (55.53) as well as the 200 medley relay (1:51.67).

"This is the unofficial beginning of the postseason," Homans said. "This is when the intensity level really goes up for all of us. We know sectionals are right around the corner, and it's time to get ready."

Griffith's Shannon Kunka showed she was ready for sectionals with a second place finish in diving with 311.25 points.

"I did really well on my backtwister," Kunka said. "It's a back somersault with a one and a half twist. I executed that dive really well and got a lot of points on it. This will help my confidence going to sectional."

Munster's Allison Cunningham won the 500 free (5:36.50), Heather Hemingway won the 100 back (1:04.35), and Nikki Smith won the 100 breaststroke (1:11.68). All were part of the clinic put on by the Seahorses.

Pavlavich was happy with the times being posted by the Seahorses.

"We're gearing up for sectional and state," he said. "This is the time for the intensity to go up and the times to go down. We did well today overall. We're in a good place as we get close to sectional."
