Wolves swimmers continue winning ways


January 9, 2019

Two meets competed in and two first-place finishes to show for it.

The Green River High School boys swimming and diving team took first in Green River and in Evanston this weekend. 

The Wolves swam hard and it showed in broken records and two more state qualifiers.

Head coach Colleen Seiloff said Jonathan Clark qualified in the 100-yard butterfly and the 100 backstroke this weekend, while Gabe Davis qualified in the 50-yard freestyle.

“We had really good times across the board,” Seiloff said.

Michael Richmond broke the school and pool record in the 200-freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle pool record, she said.

“They are doing really well,” Seiloff said. “They are competitive. They’ve been out there getting things done.”

The Wolves continue to improve every week and that’s something they try to do all season long.

This weekend, the team will travel to Cheyenne to compete at Cheyenne Central on Friday evening and at Cheyenne South Saturday. Seiloff said they are looking forward to seeing all of the 4A teams at the meets.

She said they have seen most of the 4A teams, but when they did the teams were missing some of their swimmers.

She’s hoping all of the teams will have all of their swimmers at the meet. This will give them the chance to see how competitive the other teams are.

The Wolves have had a few of their swimmers out due to colds and other illnesses, but she believes they will be ready this weekend.

“I think they are doing fine,” she said. “We’re continuing to work hard every day.”
