the Lima Holiday Invitational.
Saturday, December 29 the Celina Waterdogs traveled to the Lima YMCA for participation in the, 17 school, annual Lima Holiday Invitational. Both the Girls and Boys placed well in the 'team' standings, with the Ladies finishing 3rd and the Guys 4th. Versailles Girls dethroned perennial winner Shawnee for the Girls Championship. Shawnee continued to dominate the Boys, winning again.
Highlighting Celina's day in the pool were the WINNING swims of Tyus Temple in the 100 fly and the Girls quartet of Michaela Wenning, Kandace Eichenauer, Paige Dorsten, and Brooke Mertz in the 200 free relay. Paige, Megan Muhlenkamp, Michaela, and Brooke touched 2nd in the 200 medley relay for CHS's only runner-up finish.
Third place results came from Kasyn Fishbaugh in a tie for 3rd in the 50 free, and Tyus in the 200 IM. Brooke and Michaela had a pair of 'top 5' placings. Brooke was 4th in 50 free, 5th in 100 free. Michaela took 4th in 100 back and 5th in 100 fly. Kasyn finished 5th in 100 breast. Celina's other 'top 5' scoring efforts came via the 4th place finishes of the girls 400 free relay (Maddy Weininger, Megan, Alexis Zacharias, Kandace) and the boys 400 free relay (Kasyn, Lucas Goodwin, Tyus, Ryan Miller), as well as the 5th place of the boys 200 medley relay (Lucas, Kasyn, Tyus, Ryan).
