Kretz puts name on OHS swimming record board

Kevin Kretz officially had his name put among the list of record holders in the history of the Ottumwa High School swimming program on Wednesday during a special ceremony held at Mike McWilliams pool inside The Beach Ottumwa. Kretz broke the oldest record in the history of the program, swimming the 50 freestyle in 21.64 seconds earlier this month at the Iowa High School Boys State Swimming Meet in Iowa City. The former record was held by Rod Starkweather, who swam a 21.66-second 50 freestyle for OHS back in 1983.
