Shepard’s boys’ swim team dropped a 117-69 South Suburban Conference dual meet to Tinley Park last week before grabbing second place at its own 10-team invitational on Friday.
The Astros’ Sanders Yu was a two-time winner versus the Titans as he touched out first in both the 100-yard breaststroke (1 minute, 7.09 seconds) and 200-individual medley (2:13.01). Single-event victors were diver Tyler Timmer (195.80 points) and Hayden Wiest in the 100-backstroke (1:00.54).
Wiest’s triumph in the 100-butterfly (59.26) and his runner-up finish in the 100-backstroke (59.09) were key elements in Shepard’s performance at its invitational. Also contributing to the Astros’ 269-point total were Yu and Zach Sierzega.
