The Rhinelander High School boys' swim team advanced to 7-0 in the Great Northern Conference after defeating Medford on the road on Thursday. The Hodags won 10 of the 11 events and cruised to a 99-67 victory over the Raiders.

The Hodags were able to mix up their lineup despite being without freshman Jacob Schoppe who was out with an injury. That left Rhinelander with only nine swimmers but that still went 1-2 in six of their 10 wins on the night. Senior Russell Benoy led the way for the RHS and was part o four event wins.

Rhinelander started the night going 1-2 in the 200-yard medley relay. The team of Benoy, Thaddeus Heck, David King, and Cooper Kovac edged teammates Martin Hoger, Joseph Heck, Devon Gaber, and Cole Ashton. Rhinelander's winning team finished at 1 minute, 56.19 seconds while their teammates weren’t far behind at 2:00.41. This would give the Hodags’ an early 12-2 advantage and they never looked back.

Hoger and Gaber went 1-2 in the 200-yard freestyle to follow. With a time of 2:05.38, Hoger beat out Gaber who clocked in at 2:06.66. Benoy would win the 200-yard individual medley at 2:21.28 and King won the 50 free at 26.07 to give the Hodags a 35-24 lead at the break.

Rhinelander started right where they left off at the break and take first and second in the 100-yard butterfly. Nolan Francis led the way at 55.03 seconds and Gaber charted runner-up at 1:06.13.

Thaddeus Heck would edge Hoger by 0.27 seconds to win the 100-yard freestyle with the winning time of 55.74 seconds. The only event RHS did not win on the night was the 500-yard freestyle where Medford went 1-2-3. Matt Buchan won with a time of 6:30.25.
In the 200-yard freestyle relay Rhinelander also went 1-2 in yet another close battle against their own teammates. Kovac, Hoger, Gaber, and Benoy beat teammates Cole, Joseph Heck, King, and Francis. The winning time was 1:44.45.

Bennoy added his fourth even win in the 100-yard back with a time of 1:03.87. The Hodags went 1-2-3 in the 100-yard breast and was led by Francis with a tie of 1:05.22. Thaddeus (1:06.61) and Joseph Heck (1:07.54) went 2-3 for Rhinelander.

The Hodags closed the night by easily winning the 400-yard freestyle relay. The team of King, Thaddeus Heck, Joseph Heck, and Francis won with a time of 3:47.05.

Rhinelander will be back in action tonight when they travel to Ashwaubenon to compete in the Jaguar Invite.
