Oh, what a night

Franklin broke four Oil City  pool records -- with Camden Smith having had a hand in all of them -- in a 96-74 victory over the Oilers Feb. 5.


Two more big accomplishments followed:


  • The Knights wrapped up the region title with a 96-68 win over Grove City on Feb. 8. It was their first region crown since 2013 when they shared it with Grove City.

  • And finally on Feb. 13, they beat Titusville, 110-60, for a 13-0 record, their first unbeaten campaign since 2012.

Unlike the first go-round against Oil City when the Knights swept all 11 firsts, Franklin "only" took six races Feb. 5.


"We had a different agenda for this meet than the first time we swam Oil City," Franklin coach Charlie Smith told The News-Herald. "Obviously, we wanted to get a team win, but we were also hunting records, and we got four of them."

Smith's records came in the 50 free (21.77), 100 free (47.49) and in the medley relay (1:40.29) with Kye Winslow, Nathan Pfennigwerth and  Jordan Stumpf) and 400 free relay (same four, 3:22.02).

The old open free records were set in the 1980s -- 1987 in the 50 and 1886 in the 100 -- that by Oil City''s Wes Gaylor (48.37). Smith's time in the 100 also broke the region mark set in 2014 by Franklin's Phil Emerson  (47.74). 


Earlier, the medley relay shattered the old record of 1:43.19 set in 1996 by Darren Livezey, Mike Frederick, Ryan Fennick and Nate Edmondson. Grove City held the former 400 free relay mark of 3:25.27.

Southern Tier results

Franklin boys won the title in the Feb. 10 meet at Spire. Titusville claimed the overall championship and Oil City was second.

Oil City's Kallie Smith won the IM and the backstroke. Caleb Stover won the 50 free, setting a meet record. Stover also teamed with Charlie Motter, Logan Rakow and Bob Wheeler for a meet record in the 400 free relay. The same four tied Franklin for first in the 200 free relay in another meet record time. 

Franklin's Camden Smith won the butterfly in a meet record time. Smith, Nathan Pfennigwerth, Kye Winslow and Jordan Stumpf set a meet record in the 200 medley relay besides tying Oil City in the 200 free relay. 

Iroquois results

Franklin took first place. Camden Smith won the 50 free and butterfly. Knights claimed the 200 medley and 400 free relays

Oil City took third. Caleb Stover won the 100 and teamed with Bob Wheeler, Logan Rakow and Charlie Motter for first in 200 relay and secind in the 400.
