The West Union swim team notched its fourth win of the season Thursday in its home waters, sinking Manchester, 446-209.

The team had a lot of swimmers perform well as the team gets ready for the Conference Meet Saturday in Strawberry Point.

The younger swimmers were particularly effective for West Union.

The girls’ 8-and-under medley of Leah Shreve, Gracie Kent-Thomas, Ella Sieck, and Trinity Starrett won gold with a time of 2:04.

The younger boys finished one, two, three in both the 9-10 50 freestyle and the 8-and-under 25 fly. 

Finishing first for the 9/10-year-olds were Decklyn Heins, Wyatt Nelson, and Liam McVey, respectively. The top three in the 8-and-under were Jaxson and Brooxton Ludgren and Dane Wymer, respectively.

Individually, Laci Lauer won the 100 individual medley with a time of 2:20; Beckett Heins won the 25 freestyle in 44.1; Hunter Kent-Thompson placed first in the 50 breaststroke, and Molly Wenthold won the 100 freestyle.

The conference meet on Saturday will have warm-ups from 9 to 10 a.m., with the meet beginning at 10 a.m.
