Zeeland swam past top 10 Rockford on Tuesday night, taking 10 of 12 events. Ben Thomas and Jonathan Kollen got the boys started on the right foot with two great medley anchors. Justin Michael and Isaac Inman each posted a solid 200 Free. Jack O'Neill posted a best time in both the 50 Free and 100 Free. Philip DeJonge posted a tremendous 200 Free anchor. Jon Michael Hoeve dropped even more time in his 400 Free relay leg.
The highlights of the night, however, come from Austin Mills (100 Fly/100 Back) and Connor Robertson (200 IM/100 Breast). Their dual wins came accompanied by unprecedentedly fast times for early January.
Saturday marks the annual Rock Kilgore Invite in Plymouth - a great opportunity to race against adversity!

Zeeland kept a feisty Hudsonville at bay on Tuesday night. While it was clear that the boys were feeling the effects of Christmas Break training, many raced hard and made headlines.
Jon Michael Hoeve had a great double (100 fly/100 back). Cam Wallar performed well on the end of the Medley. Justin Michael and Isaac Inman battled to two strong 200 Frees. Evan Potter had a great 100 Free. Finally, Ben Driesenga and Ethan Wolters both posted season best 100 Breaststrokes.
The boys are back in action again, this time defending the Nat against Grand Haven and Grand Rapids Christian Thursday night.

Zeeland played host to the very fast New Years Invite on Tuesday. The meet was a test of how well the boys could push through Christmas Break fatigue, while honoring those among us who have battled cancer throughout their lives. With that in mind, we were very proud of the work put forth, and how the boys carried themselves for Zeeland.
Highlights in the pool were Connor Robertson securing two individual state cuts (200 IM/100 Breast), Jonathan Kollen (200 Free/100 Free), Austin Mills (100 Free), Ethan Wolters (100 Breast) and Christopher Honsberger (200 Free Relay).
Next up is a return to dual meet season, when the boys host Hudsonville on Tuesday, January 3.
