CROWN POINT | Seniors dominated the Crown Point boys swimming sectional on Thursday, winning 9 of 11 events in the preliminary round.

"When the seniors came out and won the medley it really set us up," Munster coach Matt Pavlovich said. "We built off of that and got a lot of top six finishes to set us up for the finals."

The Seahorses, who won five events, started the prelims with a win in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:37.50. Senior Frank Rapin swam the second leg of the relay in 27.64.

"It was not my best time of the year, but I'd rather peak at sectional finals and state," Rapin said. "As a team, our time was good so we feel pretty comfortable for Saturday."

Rapin also finished third in the 50 free (21.86) and second in the 500 free (4:50.54).

"My coach told me I was swimming the 50 two days ago," Rapin said. "I haven't swam the 50 much this year, but I have been part of the 200 free relay, so I thought I'd be OK."

Casey Hooker, senior from Rensselaer, won the 200 free with a time of 1:43.61. Highland's Adam Johnston took first in the 50 free (21.63), Teryn Solan from Lake Central won the 500 free (4:43.14), and Munster's Dillon Thompson won the 200 IM (1:57.75).

Crown Point's first win of the night was delivered by senior Marcus Trybula in the 100 free with a time of 47.60.

"All of our guys are swimming well tonight," Bulldogs coach Doug Norris said. "Everybody finished where we thought they would. We're set up for a good finals on Saturday."

Bishop Noll (1:46.82) and Griffith (1:47.41) both made the top six in the 200 medley relay. Highland suffered an early setback when their 200 medley relay team, seeded fourth, was disqualified for an early start. The DQ also keeps the relay team from competing in Saturday's finals.
