Swimmers qualify 3 for March state meet

Swimmers start strong in Gillette

 


The Green River High School Boys Swimming and Diving Team are off to a great start to their season, qualifying three swimmers for the state competition, which will take place in Gillette Feb. 26-27.

The team took part in two meets in Gillette over the weekend, a relay competition and a pentathlon.

Green River placed sixth in the relays, with a total 138 points. Green River took fourth in the pentathlon, with a total of 56 points. The Wolves tied Kelly Walsh High School in the pentathlon’s diving competition with 21 points.

During the pentathlon, Michael Richman, Ethan Moffat and Brendan Bloomquist qualified for state. Richman qualified in every featured event, including the 100-yard freestyle, 100-yard backstroke, 100-yard breaststroke, 100-yard butterfly and 50-yard freestyle. Moffatt and Bloomquist both qualified in the 100-yard breaststroke.

While those three were able to stand out by qualifying for state, head coach Colleen Seiloff said she was happy with the entire team’s performance. Seiloff said the team competed well and have solid times for the beginning of the swim season.

“I was really excited about their performance this weekend,” she said.

While she plans to try different swimmers in different events throughout the season, Seiloff said the two competitions give her a snapshot of where the swimmers’ strengths are. While the goal is to get more swimmers qualified for state and cut time, Seiloff said she aims for the swimmers and divers to work hard and improve.

The next swimming competition is at the Green River High School aquatics center and is the Riverton Invite. The meet was scheduled to take place in Green River after a malfunction closed the pool Riverton’s swimming and diving team utilizes.
