AURORA | Back at full strength with the return of some swimmers who missed last weekend’s Coaches Invitational for a Sectional meet, Smoky Hill posted a 113-73 Centennial League dual meet victory at Grandview Thursday.

One of those that were away over the weekend was junior Tylen Phillips, who returned with individual victories in the 200 yard individual medley and 100 backstroke and the anchor leg of the 400 yard freestyle relay.

Junior Jordan Scott swept the sprint freestyle events for coach Scott Cohen’s Smoky Hill team, which also got victories from junior diver Tim Domashevich and sophomore Carlos Almeraz in the 500 freestyle. The Buffaloes — who finished 10th at the Coaches Invitational — improved to 2-1 in league duals.

Dealing with some absences of its own, Grandview finished one place behind Smoky Hill at the Coaches Invite and displayed its top-ended prowess in the dual meet with five event victories, including two by senior Darius Dinkins.

Dinkins decisively won both the 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke, the latter by a whopping six seconds, while he also swam legs on the Wolves’ victories 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams.

Sophomore Cobi Wood posted the other individual win for Grandview in the 200 freestyle and swam on both winning relays, which also included Ryan Lee.

Daniel Schweitzberger and Jay Matheson contributed legs on winning relays as well.
