The Ontario boys swim team won their second consecutive Northern Ohio League championship last Saturday outpointing Sandusky 176-95. The Warriors won all three relay races and took first in seven of eight events, with senior swimmer Chad Wright bringing home a first in four events, two of them relays.

The Warrior boys also set three school records. Naz Tkachenko in the 50 meter freestyle in 22.4, Tyler Watson in the 100 meter freestyle in 49.0 and Chad Wright in the 200 meter IM in 2:00.6. Ontario swimming coach Deb Henry feels another sectional and district championship is possible having lost only one senior from last year's squad and adds that she believes this year's team is ahead of where the Warriors were a season ago.

Ontario senior Chad Wright, says the team sort of came out of nowhere to win both the sectional and district last year, but adds everybody will be looking at their times and watching them this season. Tkachenko says he is looking forward to the next three weeks of competition saying the team is already posting faster times than at this time a year ago. After winning both the sectional and districts in 2014, the Ontario boys finished ninth at state in Canton. The 2015 sectionals begin Saturday, February 14th, at Malabar Pool.  

The Warriors will host their own invitational coming up Saturday with Mansfield Senior, St. Peter's, Mansfield Christian, Shelby, Tiffin Calvert, Tiffin Columbian and Loudonville.
