“Ryan had a great day – placing third in the 50 and fourth in the 100 – the premier races on the day, featuring the Division 2 and Division 1 state champions from 2015,” said PHS head coach Clare Sedlacek who was pleased with her team’s overall performance in the meet.

“Our medley relay had a great race to start off the swim portion of the day – going a 1:45.09, just one second off the time of our state time last year.

“Our 200 free relay team was seeded fourth and finished fourth. There were great swims by all four guys, with Ryan swimming the fastest split on the day,” said the coach.

“Chaz Halderson had another great swim in the 100 breaststroke, jumping three places from the 11th seed to finish eighth. Chaz also had his best swim in the 50 free.”

Other PHS swimmers who posted personal-best times: Ben Schaefer in the 500 freestyle; Ian McConnaha and Evan Landry in the 200 and 500 freestyle races; Dawson Smith, 200 freestyle; and Keegan Gafney in the 200 individual medley.
