Lander swimmers and divers prevail against Rawlins and Cody; fall to Green River

Submitted by Tamara Anderson

During Homecoming week, the LVHS Girls Swimming and Diving Team had a tough schedule. They travelled to Green River on Thursday to face a tough Green River team. Then the very next day they faced both Cody and Rawlins at the Bruce Gresly Aquatic Center in between all the other festivities on Friday. How would they fare? Coaches Shawna Morgan, Faith Hamilton, and Tim Hester couldn’t wait to find out.

In Green River, the Tigers could not fend off the strong showing by the home team and lost 108.5 to 77.5. Event winners for Lander were: Ashlon Koch in the 200 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly, Lilyan Hamilton in the 50 Freestyle and the 100 Freestyle, and Emily Anderson in the 200 IM. Senior Kristen McPherson swam to a second place finish in the 100 Backstroke.

On Friday, the Tigers returned home and were ready for their own homecoming celebration. They easily defeated the Rawlins squad 142 to 40 and just held off the Cody team 99 to 86. Event winners were: Koch in the 50 Freestyle, Lainy Duncan in the 200 IM, and Skyler Woodruff in diving. The Lander 200 Yard Medley Relay also claimed first with swims by McPherson, Duncan, Hamilton, and Koch.

Looking ahead towards the ultimate goal of the state meet, the Tigers also gained two more qualifiers at these meets: Jenny Bautz and Divya Forbis, bringing the total number of Lander athletes eligible to 13.

Coach Morgan was pleased. “I’m super proud of the girls and where they are at this point in the season. We just passed the half way point and are sitting good shape. We are working hard at breaking some bad habits. Hopefully we can get those taken care of so we can get faster.”

Lander competes again this week on Thursday in Rawlins and Friday at home.
