TULSA – The Lady Broncos strutted their stuff all the way to the east side of the state.

The Mustang girls beat Stillwater and Booker T. Washington at Washington High School last Thursday. The Broncos came in third place. The swim teams combined finished in third place.

“I think they did a great job,” Mustang coach Bruce Clifton said.

Peyton Sprague, Samantha Jones, Lauren liver and Hannah Kertzner swam in the 200 Medley relay team that swam a 2:24.59 for second place.

The boys’ 200 Medley Relay team got fourth. Minh Nguyen, Zach McSwain, Chandler McDonald and Robert Coulter swam on that relay team.

Ryhan Deuel placed fourth in the 200 Free with a 2:45.81.

Oliver grabbed the silver in the 200 IM.

Nguyen also got second in the 200 IM.

Jones won the 50 Free with a 29.35

Kertzner swam the 100 Fly in 1:28.90 for third place.

Nguyen also got fifth in the 100 Free.

Sprague got fourth in the 400 Free.

The Lady Broncos’ 200 Free Relay team had Chrismon, Morgan Shirk, JoJo Roberts, and Mazie Garza won the bronze with a 2:23.24.

The boys’ 200 Free Relay team got third as well. Keyton Marzolf, Matt Sellon, Matthew Jensen, and Drake Stowe were on the team that swam a 2:01.51.

Kertzner swam a 1:30.76 for second place in the 100 Back. Chrismon got third in the race.
Stowe got third place in the 100 Back.

Jones earned second in the 100 Breaststroke and Oliver got third.

McSwain placed fourth in the 100 Breaststroke.

The ladies 400 Free Relay team had Jones, Kertzner, Oliver and Sprague on it that got second with a 4:56.94.
The Broncos’ 400 Free Relay team with Robert Coulter, Chandler McDonald, Stowe and Nguyen on it finished with a 4:42.47 for fourth.

The Lady Broncos are looking up and are keeping their confidence levels rising.

“It’s always challenging going up east because most of those teams have their own pools,” Clifton said. 

This is the first event of the year that Mustang has swam in a meter pool.

“It was kind of strange to some of them,” Clifton said.

The excellent start does not surprise the girls. Instead it speaks highly of the program as a whole.
The Broncos are looking to get stronger as the season progresses. Their effort will help them along the way.

“They’re putting forth a tremendous amount of effort,” Clifton said. “They just have a little farther to go.”

Clifton felt that the adjustment to a meter pool had more of an impact on the boys than it did the girls.

“I saw a lot of things I liked. I think they’re going to continue to get stronger and stronger,” Clifton said. 
The swim teams will go to Duncan on Dec. 5, for their next event.
