3 qualify for state swim meet

 

December 18, 2019



The Green River High School boys swimming and diving team might be young, but they’ve shown themselves to be very competitive in the pool.

The team traveled to Gillette last week to compete in the Gillette Relays Friday, followed by the Gillette Pentathlon Saturday.

The Wolves took fourth at the relays and fifth at the pentathlon. The divers tied for second.

According to head coach Colleen Seiloff, three swimmers qualified for state. Jason Richmond qualified in all five events in the pentathlon, the 100 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly, and the 50 freestyle. Elijah Kraft qualified for the 50 and 100 freestyle events, while Ryan Fisher qualified in the 100 breaststroke.

“We were right about where I thought these guys would be,” Seiloff said.

She said the group competed well for being such a young team and expects more qualifiers in the coming weeks.

The Wolves will have a chance to compete at home before the start of the Christmas break. The Wolves will compete Friday and Saturday at the GRHS Aquatics Center.

“It’s nice going into the Christmas break with two home meets,” Seiloff said.
