LVHS girls swimming, diving team adds another state qualifier at Green River invite

(Lander, WY) – The Lander Tigers traveled to Green River Friday before the holiday weekend to take on a tough field in Green River’s Pre-Fall Invite. Besides Lander and host Green River, the field included: Riverton, Lyman, Evanston, Kemmerer, Cheyenne East, and Rock Springs.  Green River took the meet, scoring 353 points to Lander’s 264.

Twelve different athletes scored points for the Tigers by finishing within the top 12 places in an individual event. Swimmers were only allowed to compete in two individual events at this meet and six different Tigers scored in the top 5 in their two events: Emily Anderson (200 yard IM and 500 yard freestyle), Katy Anderson (200 yard freestyle and 100 yard freestyle), Lainy Duncan (200 yard freestyle and 100 yard freestyle), Lillyan Hamilton (50 yard freestyle and 100 yard backstroke), Daegan Reinhardt (50 yard freestyle and 500 yard freestyle), and Lara Robertson (200 yard IM and 100 yard butterfly). 

Other scorers were: Katelyn Brinda, Maddie Flint, Divya Forbis, Josey Johnson, Kelsey Plaisted, and Tenley Reisig.

Lander’s divers put in quite respectable showings in a talented field. Divya Forbis took 10th place with 151.20 points and Sophie Shearin finished just out of scoring in 13th place.

Senior Lillyan Hamilton joined the ranks of green-parka wearers by swimming a state-qualifying time in the 50 freestyle at this meet. Several other swimmers are very close to meeting qualifications. Swimmers and divers must achieve a qualifying time or score at one of the regular-season meets in order to compete in that event at the state meet.

While this may not look like a victory due to the overall score, the Lander team at this point in the season is building strength, getting everyone experience on relays, and providing opportunities for athletes to qualify for the state meet in as many events as possible. 

Coach DeClue said, “They are…starting to get into shape and that really showed with some quality swims. All the less experienced girls are picking things up really fast, they dropped tons of time from last week.”

The team will be in action again Friday September 9th in Lander with a dual meet against Green River as they go head to head with the co-champions from last season. Then they follow up on Saturday with a dual meet against Jackson.
