The Kelly Walsh boys swimming and diving team didn't threaten any school records Friday at the Fish Bowl, but the Trojans' experience alone was enough to lift head coach Dean Hawks' squad to a 140-34 victory over Natrona County at the KWHS Pool . . .

More often than not the races were not close. KW's David Schmitt, the defending state champion in the 200 individual medley, dominated the event Friday. His time of 2:28:41 was 26 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. Schmitt also won the 500 free, finishing almost a full minute ahead of teammate Tyler Stewart.
