Cooley Ace Beats Mark in 1st Race

Bill Jennison, who helped Cooley retain the Public School League championship last winter, was the lone record breaker in opening PSL dual swimming meets yesterday. 
The 17-year-old senior thrashed his way to a first in the 100-yard butterfly in 55.4 seconds as Cooley defeated Chadsey, 63-32. The time bettered the city mark of 57 seconds he set last year. 
The Cooley ace also was on the 200-yard medley relay team which covered the distance in 1:54.5. The champions took eight of the 11 firsts.
Allan McDaid, of Redford, set Western pool records of 1:59.2 for the 200-yard freestyle and 4:22.6 for the 400-yard freestyle, but Western won the meet, 55-50, placing 1-2 in the breaststroke, backstroke and 200-yard individual medley.
Western's Mark Manrique had a double win with firsts in the individual medley and 100-yard backstroke. His time of 2:19.3 set a Western medley record. 
Pete Adams, PSL record holder for the 200 and 400-yard freestyle, was close to the existing records while leading Pershing to a 72-37 victory over Southeastern. The 16-year-old junior swam the 200 in 1:57.6, and the 400 in 4:18.4. 
"Pete's times were good for the first time out and he should break his own records by the time the season ends," predicted Coach Fred Grimshaw.
Australian-born John Savinsky gave Pershing firsts in the individual medley and butterfly races. Pershing led in 10 events. 
Denby's dual meet champions depended on depth to beat Mumford, 64-41, placing first in seven events. The lone double victor was Mumford's Dick Golden, who led in the 100 and 200-yard freestyles. 
Cass dedicated Henry Ford's new pool by sweeping all events in an 80-26 triumph. Dick Hammond led in the butterfly and individual medley events. 
"We have a well-ballanced team but Ford has a new team and we couldn't tell how good we are," said Coach Don Cooper. "That will have to wait until we meet Eastern next week." 
Eastern clipped Central, 59-43, with nine firsts. Jim Young won the 50 and 100-yard freestyle. 
Art Golin's firsts in the 200 and 400-yard freestyles stood out as Cody defeated Mackenzie, 63-32. 
Plymouth nipped Dearborn, 57-48. Dearborn's Jay Osrowske won the 50-yard freestyle in 24.1 and set a Dearborn pool record of 4:15.1 in the 400-freestyle.
