Several Wolves Will Chase Titles Friday

GILLETTE – Several Wolves will swim for titles while others will move to Friday morning as the first day of the 4A State Championships has concluded.

To swim for a state title, swimmers had to finish their preliminary heats in the top six places. Two Wolves finished the day with the fastest times while several others will be in the A finals. In the 200 IM, Michael Richmond was almost two seconds faster than the field as he finished the preliminarys in first place. Richmond also touched first in the 100 fly finishing almost a second and a half in front of the second-place swimmer.

In the 100-yard breaststroke, Ethan Moffatt finished with a time of 59.11 to pace the field on the first day of the championships.

The divers finished both the prelims and semifinals with several Wolves in the hunt. Four Wolves made the finals led by Coleton Spalding who finished the first day in the third spot. Keyan Moore is currently seventh followed by Miles Moffat in 11th and Alejandro Grajeda in 15th.
