Nulton sets record in loss to Somerset

The Tyrone boys swim team had a slim three-point lead going into the final event against Somerset in the Tyrone Area High School pool. Somerset (6-1) captured both first and second places in the 400 meter freestyle relay to jump over the Golden Eagles to nip Tyrone 88-81, despite a record setting performance by Tyrone junior Ethan Nulton.
Nulton, who set a school record with a time of 1:56.26 in the 200 freestyle, also won the 500 freestyle and teamed with fellow double winners Dustin Elder and Philip Kreckel and Chris Closson to win both the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay. Elder won the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke, while Kreckel won both the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle races.
Somerset was able to keep the meet close up to the 400 relay, however, despite the Eagles (5-3) winning eight of the 11 events, by scoring a bunch of seconds and thirds. The only seconds for the Tyrone boys were by Closson in the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly and by Allen Hosko in the 100 breaststroke. Somerset received second place points in eight events.
The Tyrone girls dropped a 104-60 decision to the Somerset girls, despite winning performances by Salena Bradigan, Brittany Day and Kelly Pearson.
Bradigan won the 200 freestyle race and was second in the 100 butterfly. Day won the 100 free and was second in the 500 freestyle. Pearson won the 100 backstroke and was second in the 100 freestyle.
Bradigan, Day and Pearson also teamed with Christina Brisban to place second in the 200 medley relay and with Abby Cowfer for a a second place finish in the 200 freestyle relay.
The Tyrone girls swept the top three places in the 100 freestyle race with Day, Pearson and Cowfer placing 1-2-3.
