Great Bend High School Boys Swim Team competed in Hays on Jan. 19.
“Obviously, we competed against some teams that are rebuilding this year and are down. I just challenged the kids to go out and race hard. With only a limited number of opportunities left in the season to race, we needed to keep competing hard and trying to improve our times regardless of who we were competing against.” said Coach Steve Beumont. “Our middle distance and distance swimmers are really starting to drop times. Those were strong events for us today. Many of our new and younger swimmers had the opportunity to try some new events today. Max Jerke and Logan Oneil both swam the 100 fly for the first time and did a great job. Eduardo Prado, Matthew Hapes, Jordan Popp, Cal Kaiser, and Eli Hutchinson all swam the 200 free for the first time. Malachi Williams competed in his first 500 Freestyle and swam well. I am really pleased with how our new and younger swimmers have competed in their first year on the team.”
Great Bend swimmers placed first and second in six events and swept the top three places in three other events.
The next meet will be the Wichita Heights Invitational at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
