Swimmers continue to excel
January 20, 2021
With six weeks until the end of their season, the Green River High School Boys Swimming and Diving Team continue to push themselves in the pool.
Head coach Colleen Seiloff said the boys are swimming tired, but remain competitive at their meets. It will be another three weeks until they start to taper their practices in preparation for State. The process slowly eases the practice workouts on swimmers, allowing them rest and compete at 100% during Regionals and State.
The team hasn’t had any new State qualifiers added to the list of 17 Wolves who will compete at the State meet. Seiloff said those who have already gotten their tickets to the Feb. 18 competition in Laramie have added to the number of events they can compete in, giving the team more flexibility.
“We swam some great meets in the last couple of weeks,” she said.
Seiloff believes an 18th swimmer could achieve a state-qualifying time as they’re close breaking that barrier.
With 20 members, the team is smaller than in previous years, but Seiloff said they’re doing well and competing at a top level. She said many of the swimmers continue to give it their all in the pool both at meets and during practices, specifically naming Cole Gilmore, Jason Richmond, Elijah Kraft, Zeke Reading, Brady Young and Ryan Fischer.
“It’s hard to single out just a few,” Seiloff said.
The Wolves will compete at home Saturday, but will travel to Lyman for a meet Friday.
