Boys Swim & Dive Heat Up at Section Swim Meet

By Dustin Boll, 02/25/23, 8:00AM CST


The Warrior Boys Swim & Dive team didn't skip a beat at last night's 4A Section Swim Meet, hosted by Two Rivers High School, as they added to the momentum the Girls' team started from the Fall. It was cold & snowy outside, but inside the TRHS Aquatics Center, things heated up as the night went on.

Charley Cook started the day off with a 2nd place finish in Diving, earning him a trip to State. Ruslan Bayuk finished 5th in the 500 Free & 7th in the 100 Backstroke. George Altier finished 5th in the 100 Free & 6th in the 200 Free. The Warrior of the night went to Finley Gustafson, who finished 2nd in the 100 Free & 1st in the 200 IM! Finley was also the anchor of the 200 & 400 Free Relay teams that finished 3rd & 2nd, respectively. The cherry on top for the Warriors was the 200 Free Relay team (Finley Gustafson, George Altier, Nathan Frisch, Jack Dahlager) that set a new school record with a time of 1:30.23, breaking the previous 10-year-old school record!

(1) St. Thomas Academy - 595
