Sauk Prairie senior Desmon Sachtjen swims the 200-yard individual medley during Tuesday's home dual against Baraboo.

The Sauk Prairie co-op boys swim team took 15th among a fast field in Brown Deer on Saturday.

The Eagles scored 48 points to place 15th out of 23 teams. Madison West scored 357 to win the title at the Schroeder YMCA Aquatic Center, while Middleton (259), Waukesha South co-op (196), Franklin (194) and Chicago Fenwick (185) rounded out the top five.

Sauk Prairie co-op’s Desmon Sachtjen made his mark in the talented field, taking second in a pair of events. The Lodi senior touched the wall in 1 minute, 54.98 seconds to take second in the 200-yard individual medley, trailing only Middleton’s Nathan Kim (1:54.63).

It took a new meet record to beat Sachtjen in the 100-yard backstroke. Sachtjen’s time of 51.20 seconds finished behind Madison West’s Wes Jekel, who had a meet-record time of 50.47 seconds.

Sauk Prairie’s other top-30 individual finishes came from Zach Guentherman (21st place, 5:20.94), Adam Stecker (22nd, 5:22.15) and Jackson Shavlik (29th, 5:30.53) in the 500 freestyle; Jordan Chao (27th, 1:03.40) and Ryan Godwin (29th, 1:03.88) in the 100 backstroke; and Sam Beattie in the 200 individual medley (28th, 2:15.99).

Sauk Prairie’s top relay finish came in the 200 medley relay, as the quartet of Guentherman, Karsten Flogel, Sachtjen and Adam Stecker took 12th in 1:46.95.

The Eagles closed out their home schedule with Tuesday’s 106-64 Badger North Conference dual-meet win over Waunakee.
