Swimmers compete at Knight Invitational

The Southeast Knights Invitational is the first meet of the year with qualifying standards needed to swim at the meet, we were very pleased to take so many individual qualifiers along with relays. The top teams in the state attend this meet so it gives us a very good idea where we stand. We saw some good things today. A new state secondary qualifying time was achieved by Freshman Taylor Larkins in the 50 freestyle. Freshman Keegan Schuchart achieved a personal best and improved his state qualifying time in the 100 freestyle and the 100 backstroke. Keegan also placed in the top ten in the 100 back and 100 freestyle, placing 8th in both events. Divers; Schuyler Miller placed 9th and Dalton Layman placed 11th . Rebecca Garland also made it through the first cut of dives, finishing 19th. This bodes well for the dive squad at future meets. Also improving a qualifying time was freshman, Ainsley Hostetler in the 50 free. Performing personal bests were Josilyn Schiebur in the 50 freestyle, Taylor Larkins in the 200 freestyle, Ciarra Benes, in the 100 breaststroke and Ainsley Hostetler in the 100 backstroke. Regan Monhollon also made improvements in his butterfly and 50 freestyle relay splits. Seeing improvements at each meet tells us that all the hard work we have been putting in at practices is beneficial. Next competition for the team will be after the holiday break with a quadrangular meet with Elkhorn, Hastings and Gretna, on Friday, January 10, at the Beatrice YMCA at 4:00PM.
