    Homecoming Weekend Challenges Lander Swimmers & Divers

    By Susan Gray Gose

    The Lander girls swimming and diving team easily won a home meet on Friday, beating teams from Cody and Rawlins and winning every event but two. On Saturday, however, a smaller than usual Lander squad faced a tough Powell team at the Pinedale Girls Invitational and had to settle for second to the Panthers.

    After a late night at Homecoming festivities, Lander was without 13 athletes in Pinedale due to sickness, college SATs, and other conflicts. “We swam and dove awesome on Saturday for being completely homecoming exhausted and missing 13 athletes,” said head coach Shawna Morgan. “We posted 18 personal bests, and Ashlon Koch broke the 100-yard backstroke pool record.”


    Sophomore Koch raced to a speedy 1:02.34. Koch also won the 200-yard freestyle in Pinedale. Meanwhile, senior Olivia Fowler out-touched more than 50 racers to win the 50-yard freestyle at the large invitational.

    Lander also enjoyed success in the relays, winning two of the three. Three other Tigers took top-3 finishes at the meet. Junior Anja Harms took second in the 50-yard free and third in the 100- yard free. Freshman Lainy Duncan claimed third in the 100-yard breastroke, and classmate Lillyan Hamilton took third in the 50-yard free. Senior Makayla McPherson helped secure the win for the 200-yard freestyle relay.

    Senior Li Platz and junior Skyler Woodruff improved their dives in the championship 11-dive format in Pinedale, taking 6th and 8th places.


    At the home meet on Friday, several Tigers enjoyed wins: Fowler in the backstroke, Koch in the 200-yard IM, Hamilton in the 100-yard free, Platz in diving, senior Leah Brown in the 50-yard free, and senior Lily Gose in the 200-yard free and 100-yard butterfly.

    Morgan said the focus in coming meets will be to help the athletes who are close to qualifying for the state meet, hit their marks. “We still have five athletes that are super close to qualifying,” she said. “We are going to concentrate on getting them over that hump and continue working on our technique which gets hard this time of season. Hopefully, the sickness that’s been going around is almost done, too. That will help all kinds of things.”

    The Lander Tigers travel to Powell on Friday, then host their final home meet at 10 a.m. on Saturday against Jackson. Fans are encouraged to come and join in a celebration of the team’s nine seniors: Anne Baron, Leah Brown, Mia Cox, Grace Flint, Olivia Fowler, Lily Gose, Makayla McPherson, Li Platz, and McKella Stigers.
