Not even the rain could put out the fire behind Upper Arlington's Swim & Racquet Club. It won its third consecutive Suburban Swim Club League title July 12 at the Hilliard Family Aquatic Center.

Not even the rain could put out the fire behind Upper Arlington's Swim & Racquet Club. It won its third consecutive Suburban Swim Club League title July 12 at the Hilliard Family Aquatic Center.

After an hour delay because of the rain, the Seadogs (3,149.5) swam past Olentangy (2,524), Muirfield (2,454.5), Hilliard (1,950) and Bexley (48).

Ian Hamilton, 12, was a staple in Swim & Racquet's success, winning all of his events and wowing the crowd with his performance in the 100-yard individual medley. His time of 1 minute, 5.21 seconds was the second-best in the entire meet, falling only short to 17-year-old Trent Kaufmann (1:03.05) of the Olentangy Tornados.

"It's my favorite," Hamilton said. "I like all strokes, and it's a chance to go fast and have some fun."

Hamilton also won the 50 freestyle (26.22), the 50 backstroke (30.86) and the 200 medley relay (2:15.07) with Benjamin Sugar, Jack Leboeuf and Max Barnes in the boys 11-12 age group. Other multiple first-place winners in the 8-and-under girls division for the Seadogs were Abbey Cullen (100 medley relay with Emma Schueler, Kaylee Barrett and Ellena Schildmeyer, 1:31.50 and 25 butterfly, 21.08), Leah Burton (25 butterfly, 21.08 and 100 freestyle relay with Barrett, Julia Linzell, and Lindsay Hjelle, 1:18.19) and Barrett (100 medley relay, 100 freestyle relay and 25 breaststroke, 21.34. Jack McHugh (100 medley relay with Jared March, Tyler Zesch, and Griffin Burcham, 1:24.02 and 25 Backstroke, 19.89), March (100 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay with Joe Winslow Alec Caswell and Jonathan Sugar, 2:29.41), Caswell (200 freestyle relay and 50 freestyle, 34.53), and Sugar (200 freestyle relay and 25 butterfly, 16.21) were multiple event winners in the 9-10 boys during the junior meet.

The Swim and Racquet multiple winners from the senior meet were Erin Sheehan (100 IM, 1:09.49; 50 butterfly, 30.69 and 50 breaststroke, 36.28) and Megan Morgan (200 freestyle relay with Caroline Sugar, Taylor Brown, and Mary Kate Greenlee, 2:02.52 and 50 free, 29.51) in the 11-12 girls, Benjamin Sugar (200 medley relay; 50 yard breaststroke, 38.49 and 200 freestyle relay with Max Barnes, Leboeuf, Jack and Will Sears, 2:09.32), Leboeuf (200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay) and Barnes (200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay) in the 11-12 boys, Bailey Smith (50 breaststroke, 35.38 and 50 freestyle, 27.40) in 13-14 girls, Brian Barnett (200 medley relay with Austin Serif, Tyler Hall, and Ben Allison, 2:34.42 and 100 IM, 1:14.42) and Hall (200 medley relay and 50 breaststroke, 36.01) in the 13-14 boys.

•The Hilliard Marlins' Olivia Wile had a smile that was big enough to see every color of the rainbow on her braces after she won the 11-12 girls 50 individual backstroke in 33.44 seconds.

She wasn't so sure she was going to get the chance to swim her favorite race after she woke up to grey skies and pouring down rain.

"I was thinking, 'We're not going to get to finish,'" Wile said. "I knew it was going to rain, and I really didn't want it to. I was ready to swim today."

Wile also won the 200 medley relay (2:15.59) with Brenna Banda, Brynn Driscoll and Livy Boysel.

Matt Sheahan won the 50 backstroke (29.91) in the 15-18 age group for the Marlins.

•Last year, the Muirfield Muirfins' Cara Corroto won the backstroke in the 13-14 age group. Moving up an age group didn't faze her. She won four events for Muirfield. Corroto won the 50 backstroke (32.55), 100 individual medley (1:06.90), and 200 medley relay (2:05.77) and 200 free style relay (1:47.74) with Kelsey Holderman, Shannon Vinci and Maureen Dmytryk in the 15-18 age group.

"I swim year-round," Corroto said. "I don't really notice swimming with older girls. The best feeling is when I'm first and stick my head out, and see that there is no one around me. It's just great."

The other Muirfin multiple winners were Blake Hera (25 backstroke, 22.62 and 100 medley relay with Keegan Heinlen, Reno James and Silas Kayuha, 1:34.53) and James Reno (100 medley relay and 25 breaststroke, 22.24) in the boys 8-and-under. Morgan Quesnel (50 butterfly, 27.00; 100 IM, 1:04.18; 200 medley relay with Alexis Holderman, Amanda Backus and Madison Redd, 2:09.48 and the 200 freestyle relay with Backus, Redd and Alexis Holderman, 1:53.29), Alexis Holderman (200 freestyle relay, 200 medley relay), Redd (200 freestyle relay, 200 medley relay) and Backus (200 freestyle relay, 200 medley relay) were all multiple event winners in the 13-14 girls division. Kelsey Holderman (50 breaststroke, 36.95; 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay), Vinci (200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay), and Dmytryk (50 freestyle, 26.54; 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay) were multiple event winners in the 15-18 girls group. Jonathan March, Patrick Wagner, Matt Minns and Joe Vinci, (200 medley relay, 2:07.59 and 200 freestyle relay, 1:46.07) were multiple event winners in the 15-18 boys group.

Muirfield did not field a diving team for the meet.

•Olentangy's Brett Schutte wasn't about to swim his favorite race, but still felt a responsibility to give the Tornados at least one win. So, finishing a stroke ahead of Swim & Racquet's Brian Barnett in the boys 13-14 50-yard freestyle (27.70) was that much sweeter.

"Butterfly is my favorite stroke," Schutte said. "I was relieved just knowing I didn't completely fail. I'm just going to take it easy."

Schutte's day could hardly be considered a failure. He won the 50 backstroke (36.38) and the 200 freestyle relay (2:07.13) with Jacob Teed, Sam McCabe, and Matt Totin. The other multiple winners for the Tornados were Kate Saczawa (25 freestyle, 16.61 and 25 backstroke, 19.83), in the girls eight and under group, Jackson Roberts (25 freestyle, 17.50 and 25 butterfly, 20.73) in the boys 8-and-under; Rachel Peroni (50 freestyle, 29.11; 25 breaststroke, 17.10 and the 200 yard freestyle relay with Alexandria Braun, Caroline Cruise, and Emily Ziliak, 2:17.20) in the girls 9-10 group; Brittany Menninger (Diving and 50 Backstroke, 33.05) in the girls 13-14 group; and Kaufmann (100 IM and 50 breaststroke, 31.37) and Peter Clark (50 freestyle, 23.74 and 50 butterfly, 26.96) in the boys 15-18 group.
