CLINTON — The Clinton River Kings won three events in a 113-57 Mississippi Athletic Conference loss to the Pleasant Valley Spartans Thursday.

Clinton started strong, winning the meet’s first event, the 200-yard medley relay. The relay quartet included Garrett Bouchard, Dmitriy Burdin, Arne Doehring and Kyle Spittler.

Bouchard and Spittler also earned individual event wins. Bouchard won the 100 butterfly, and Spittler the 100 freestyle.

Spittler won the 100 freestyle by a scant four-hundredths of a second — 53.62 to 53.66. Bouchard also won the butterfly by less than a second — 59.09 to 59.72.

“The team worked very hard over winter break,” River Kings coach Albert Hayton said. “They were hungry for some competition, and they got it. The guys had 20 or more season bests. They all are moving in the right direction.”
