The Napoleon boys swimming and diving team took a huge step Friday, winning the prestigious Northwest Ohio Aquatic Conference Relays, held at the NHS Natatorium.
The Wildcats won the meet by 20 points over runner-up Fremont Ross.
The Lady Cats took fourth place in the 10-team field.
“Both the boys and the girls swam and dove spectacularly,” said Napoleon swim coach Denise Brown. “It has been at least 12 years since the Napoleon boys have captured this title.”
The Napoleon boys team was paced by the first-place finish of the 300 butterfly relay team of Drew Gray, Brett Bostelman, Khalil Tran and Kyle Hudson.
The Lady Cats won the diving relay, with the team of Audrey Seemann and Addison Heitman scoring 176.5 points.
Next week is a busy week for Napoleon as they travel to Northview Tuesday night and then host the Wildcat Invite Saturday. Diving starts at 8:15 a.m. and the swimming begins at noon.
