Andrew Butzow (Marengo), Dylan Page (Belvidere), Drew Mateja (Marengo), Oryi Tucker (Belvidere)

On Sunday, March 19th, the Illinois State YMCA Championship swim meet was held in St. John, Indiana where the Belvidere Barracuda swim team competed. Two of our own Marengo boys, Andrew Butzow and Drew Mateja, swam in several events but the most important race of the day was the 200M Free Relay. The four young men on the Barracuda relay team had a chance to break the Belvidere YMCA record for this event. This would be the last competition for the two 21 year old boys, Andrew Butzow and Dylan Page of Belvidere, since swimmers can only compete until the age of 21 through the YMCA swim program. Andrew Butzow had chased this dream for several years. Drew Mateja (Marengo) and Oryi Tucker (Belvidere) swam the third and final legs of the relay and both swimmers swam their leg in just over 23 seconds. The Barracuda relay team got a best time of 1:36.58 and broke the Belvidere record! The boys were elated that they not only broke the record, but shaved 2 seconds off the old record! Their names will be added to the record board in the pool area of the Belvidere YMCA
