The Spring Lake swim and dive team took on some tough Division 1 competition over the weekend as they participated in the Hudsonville Invitational.

The Lakers took home four gold medals and eight total medals amid a loaded field featuring West Ottawa, Hudsonville, Zeeland, Hamilton, Jenison, Byron Center, Rockford, Caledonia and Grandville.

Cam Peel picked up a pair of victories in the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 freestyle, coming in at 20.99 seconds and 46.69 seconds, respectively.

Peel was challenged in the 50 by Joey Wacther, who took second place with a time of 21.48. Wachter went on to take runner-up in the 100 backstroke in 54.14, behind a ballistic 51.42 by West Ottawa’s Derek Maas.

K.J. Losee picked up a Laker win in the 100 butterfly with a time of 52.91 and grabbed a third-place finish in the 200 freestyle at 1:45.93.

Losee, Sam Sella, Wachter and Peel teamed up for Spring Lake’s strongest relay effort in the 200 freestyle relay as the foursome clocked in at 1:26.94 to best the field by nearly two seconds.

The same four ended the meet with a strong performance as they took second in the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:11.51.

Eric Geschiere, Evan Schock, Charles Brown and Ed Lidke picked up fourth place in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:44.07.

The Lakers are scheduled to return to action today at Grand Rapids Christian for an O-K Greater Grand Rapids Swim Conference showdown at 6 p.m.
