BOONE - The twosome of John Mahlstede and Blair Van Staalduine accounted for the Marshalltown boys' swimming team's only event victory at the Toreador Relays hosted by Boone High School on Saturday.

The Bobcats placed fifth out of six teams in the relay-based invitational, finishing only one point back of Carroll for fourth. Fort Dodge won with 64 points, Boone had 45, Southeast Polk 42, Carroll 37, MHS 36 and Storm Lake 1.

Mahlstede and Van Staalduine teamed up to take first place in the 200-yard backstroke relay, combining on a winning time of 2 minutes, 6.33 seconds.

The Bobcats collected one runner-up finish as Raymond Dulaney and Connor Dilger took second in the 400 individual medley relay (4:35), just over 2 seconds shy of Carroll's winning tandem.

Mahlstede was a part of two third-place MHS relays as well, leading off for the 200 medley relay. Dulaney, Dilger and Glenn Van Staalduine joined him for bronze in a time of 1:50.06, while Mahlstede and Sam Carter took third in the 1,000 freestyle relay (11:28.49).

Dilger and Glenn Van Staalduine also had a third-place performance in the 200 freestyle relay.
