3A and 4A Swim teams descend on Gillette for the 2013 State Finals.
One of the biggest stories of the swim season is that of the Lander Tigers. Again. Bruce Gresly’s team has won the past 16 State 3A titles and looks poised to make it #17 this weekend. Last year his team won the title without winning a single individual event or relay. Depth is the key factor and the Tigers have plenty of it again this year. Buffalo and Worland have very strong teams this year, too, but are not likely to oust the Tigers from the top spot.
3A Returning Event Winners:
Zach Cain (So Raw) 200 IM
Austin Rettinghouse (Jr Wor) Diving
Conner Petty (So Wor) 100 Free
Neil Medders (Sr Buff) 500 Free
Nate Holt (Sr Buff) 100 Back
4A appears to have five teams the could potentially hoist the top trophy. Central is perhaps the front runner after having an undefeated season. The Indians, though, will get stiff competition from last year’s Champion Gillette as well as Laramie and also Rock Springs and Kelly Walsh.
4A Returning Event Winners:
Collin Baldacci (Sr Gil) 200 IM, 100 Back
David Bowersox (Jr Gil) 50 Free
4A will swim prelims Thursday afternoon with their finals on Friday morning. 3A has their prelims Friday afternoon with the finals on Saturday morning.
