Monroe senior Kendell Niffenegger won the 100-meter butterfly in 1 minute, 18.43 seconds in the Cheesemakers' Badger South season opener on Tuesday. Stoughton clipped Monroe, 87-83.
MONROE - With a fever pitch reminiscent of a sectional swim meet, Monroe and Stoughton duked it out in a dual meet that came down to the wire.With Monroe clinging to a 79-77 lead heading into the final event - the 400-meter freestyle relay, emotion built. One of the Cheesemakers' 400 freestyle relay teams was disqualified and the Vikings squeaked out an 87-83 win in the Cheesemakers' Badger South Conference opener Tuesday night at the Green County YMCA. Monroe would have had second and third place finishes in the event with two relay teams, but an official ruled a swimmer left early.
