Cooper Glentzer has proven to be a strong swimmer for Jay County.

Now his name is being recorded in the record books.

Glentzer finished Monday as a double-event winner while making the record book for the 13-14-year-old 50-meter backstroke to help the Jay County summer swim team to a dominant 690-295 victory over Yorktown at Portland Water Park in the final dual meet of the season.

Glentzer broke the 38-year-old JC summer swim team record while tying the 27-year-old pool record in the 50 backstroke with a time of 32.14 seconds. Jason Arnold previously set the Jay County record back in 1986 by swimming a 32.62. Glentzer’s name will be next to Zac Biberstein of Wells Community, who hit the 32.14 mark in 1997.

Glentzer’s other victory came in the 50 butterfly.

Jay County had three triple-event winners, including Addisyn Champ, who finished undefeated in dual meets for the third year in a row.

Champ claimed the top spot for the 9-10-year-old girls in the 25 freestyle, 25 backstroke and 50 backstroke.

Joining Champ as triple event winners were Henry Warvel and Elly Byrum. Warvel’s wins came in the 8-and-younger division, while Byrum competed with the 15-and-older swimmers.

Warvel claimed the 25 butterfly, 100 individual medley and the 25 breaststroke.

Byrum captured the 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and 50 freestyle.
