Central swimmers edge River Kings

DAVENPORT — Davenport Central won seven of the 11 events, and that was enough to push the Blue Devils past Clinton 50-44 in boys swimming Thursday night.

The lower-than-usual scores were created because Central’s four-lane pool limits each team to two entries in each race instead of the typical four.

Sophomore Josh Hill stood out for the River Kings. He had a role in three of Clinton’s wins. He won the 200-yard freestyle in 1 minute, 54.5 seconds, beating Central’s Jordan Miller by almost 10 seconds. His margin was almost 50 seconds in the 500 freestyle. He won that race in 5:13.65, while runner-up Jesse Trujillo of Central finished in 6:02.45.

Hill also anchored Clinton’s winning entry in the 400 freestyle relay, which finished in 3:37.37, more than five seconds ahead of Central. Nathan Harden led off the relay with a 56.21 split. Bret Determan swam the second leg in 56.51, Trevor Kao followed with a 52.86 clocking in the third leg and Hill swam a 51.79 final leg.

Kao picked up Clinton’s other win, leading the Kings to a 1-2 finish in the 50 freestyle. He won in 23.61 seconds, while Harden was second in 24.84. Harden almost pulled off a double win but was edged by 1/100th of a second in the 100 freestyle, which was won by Central’s Will Trasowech in 55.68.

The River Kings are back in action Tuesday with a meet at Dubuque Hempstead.

  • Smartphone kill switches are coming

    Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!

    It happened two hours after John Hood finished his run. Like many, he thought the loud boom was just the sound of cannons going off, something that shook the ground. It was odd, but Hood — a 1989 Clinton High School graduate — tried to make it logical, associating the noise with another good happening at the Boston Marathon.
