Minot High swimming & diving takes another win in Williston
WILLISTON — Another trip to Williston, another win in the books for the Minot High School swimming and diving team. The Magicians took down the Coyotes in a dual, 135-51, Friday at the Williston Area Rec Center.
Dominic Yoder won both of his individual events of the evening in the 100-yard freestyle and the 100 backstroke. Joining him in the top three for the 100 freestyle were Alexander King in second and Oliver Roongin in third.
William Walker-Rozo finished just behind Yoder in the 100 backstroke followed by fellow Magi Zac Spaulding to round out the top three. Walker-Rozo took first in the 200 freestyle followed by Alexander King and Peyton Huss.
Jack Wolsky took first in the 50 freestyle with a 23.66 with Steve Novak right behind him in second with a 23.75.
Grant Schaeffer took first in the 100 breaststroke with Seth Rice finishing in second.
Williston’s Rhys Enget took first in both his individual events — the 200 individual medley and the 200 butterfly — which were the only first place events for the Coyotes.
On the diving boards, Minot’s Layton King led the pack with a total score of 234.50 followed by fellow Magi Reece Pederson and Mason Robertson in second and third.
The Magicians will jump back in the water Friday, Jan. 18, at 4:30 p.m. as the take on Grand Forks Central and Jamestown at home.
falls to Bismarck High, 37-19
BISMARCK — After jumping out to an early 16-7 lead, the Minot High wrestling team couldn’t seal the deal in a 37-19 road loss to Bismarck High on Friday.
“We got off to a good start,” MHS head coach Justin Racine said. “But (Bismarck) just had more depth than us in the lower weights and was able to get the matchups it wanted.”
The Magicians had the Demons on the ropes early on when sophomore Chase Burke kicked off the competition with a fall against Bismarck’s Ben Nagel in the 152-pound match.
A 6-1 decision win by junior Jacob Carmichael (182) over Colton Lauen, an 11-0 major decision win by senior Jorge Talamantes (195) over Jordan Schumacher and an 8-1 decision win by junior Preston Jones (220) over Tyler Schmit helped give the Magi a quick 16-7 edge.
But the Demons rebounded, scoring 30 of the final 33 points en route to the 37-19 win. Minot’s only points during the run came when junior Kelby Armstrong earned an 8-4 decision win over Bismarck’s Wilfried Tanefeu in the 113-pound match.
Minot will look to rebound on Thursday when it hits the road to take on Mandan at 7 p.m.
