Great Bend’s boys won three events and captured its home swimming meet with 403 points Tuesday at the Barton Community College pool.
Dawson Clark captured the 100-yard butterfly (58.78).
“Dawson swam a great race, just off his best time from last season that he swam at state,” said Great Bend coach Steve Beaumont. “He is really looking good early in the season.”
The winning 400-yard freeestyle relay posted a state-qualifying time (3:45.93) with Dawson Clark, Phane Pedigo, Cole Pierce and Isaac Panzer competing.
Cole Pierce captured first place in the 200-yard freestyle (2:06.82).
Finishing with runner-up finishes were the 200-yard medley relay (1:51.91) with Phane Pedigo, Sean Williams, Dawson Clark and Corey Harbaugh competing; the 200-yard freetsyle relay (1:44.99) with Corey Harbaugh, Zach Seymour, Jordan Boone and Isaac Panzer swimming; and Connor Furrey in the 500-yard freestyle (6:01.73).
“I was very proud of how well we competed,” Beaumont said. “McPherson is a very talented team and really dominated the second half of the meet. We only won two individual events, so I was really a bit surprised that we held them off. There were some really great races between swimmers from various schools. There was definitely more competition and closer races than our first meet.”
Beaumont tested swimmers and entered them in a variety of events.
“We are focusing on getting a lot of the swimmers into different events early in the season,” he said. “Right now, our experienced kids are really leading the way. We have a long way to go in terms of developing depth. Some of our younger swimmers, competed in events for the first time.”
Great Bend competes at the Hutchinson YMCA Dec. 13.
