A showdown between three of District 10′s premier swimmers looms in the Class AA 100-yard boys backstroke this week in the D-10 championships.

Fairview’s Robert Sikatzki, Mercyhurst Prep’s Griffin Schaetzle and Corry’s Brent Benedict are the top three seeds, respectively, in the 100 backstroke in what might be the most competitive race at this weekend’s D-10 championships.

The District 10 released the psych sheets for the Class AA and Class AAA meets, which take place Friday and Saturday at Penn State Behrend’s Junker Center. Remember, DuBois is swimming in the D-10 Class AAA meet this year.

(Throughout the next week, the Varsity blog will feature a series of posts about the upcoming PIAA swimming and diving championships at Bucknell University in Lewisburg.)

Rylee Klomp

Kevin Intrieri

District 10 has boasted some talented swimmers in a large variety of events throughout the years, but this season D-10 has been particularly strong in the sprinting events.

Led by McDowell senior Kevin Intrieri, D-10 saw meet or pool records fall in six events during this past weekend’s District 10 swimming championships at Penn State Behrend.

Intrieri tied the Class AAA meet and pool record with a time of 20.77 in the 50-yard freestyle. He also set meet and pool records in the 100-yard freestyle with a 46.17.

Franklin sophomore Phil Emerson continued his brilliant two-year career by setting Class AA meet records in the 50 free (21.07) and 100 free (46.37). His time in the 100 free was a pool record for a few hours Saturday. Intrieri broke the record later in the day.

Finally, Mercyhurst Prep junior Rylee Klomp set District 10 Class AA meet and pool marks in the 50 free (23.69) and 100 free (51.70).
