Baldwin rolls to both MIL team swim titles
February 2, 2013 - Robert Collias
KIHEI — Baldwin High School cruised to both Maui Interscholastic League team swimming and diving titles today at the Kihei Aquatic Center.
The Bears boys and girls each had 84 points, while Seabury Hall was the runner-up each time — the Spartans had 55 points in the girls team chase and 63 in the boys.
The meet also marked the end of the Renny Richmond era as a prep on Maui — the Seabury Hall senior won his seventh and eighth MIL individual crowns and capped things with a 21.15-second lead-off leg in the 200-yard freestyle relay in which the Spartans snapped a 19-year-old all-Maui record. Seabury Hall's mark of 1:28.17 replaced the 1:29.93 set by Baldwin in 1993 — the Bears were also under that number today, at 1:28.48.
Zack Kresge, John Van Scoy and Ryan Koss joined Richmond on the relay team.
Richmond, who signed with the University of Arizona in November, can finish with more state titles than any MIL boy in any sport ever if he wins his fourth state 100 butterfly crown and his third 50 free title in two weeks on Oahu. He also told me that he would like to take another shot at the national fly record of 46.64 that he was within a half second of last year.
