Seven Riverton girls qualified in swimming events, and Addison Peart met the qualifying standard in diving for next weekend’s state championships in Gillette.
“It’s been a great season, and I’m very proud of all of them, even those that didn’t make a qualifying time,” Riverton head swim coach Kristi Spriggs said.
The Lady Wolverines will field all three relays as well as filling a dozen individual events. In swimming you can compete in two individual events and two relays. As a whole, Riverton girls met the standard in 24 individual events.
Amelia Tate met the standard in the 50, 100, and 200 freestyle, the 200 individual medley, the 500 free, and the 100-yard butterfly.
Prestley Barta also qualified in the 50, 100, and 200 freestyle and the 100-yard breaststroke.
Kendall Vincent is qualifying in the 50,100, and 200 freestyle as well as the 100-yard backstroke and the 200-yard individual medley.
Julianne Spradlin slammed the three freestyle events as well qualifying previously in the 50 and 100-yard events and qualifying on Thursday at home in the 200 in the Last Chance Meet.
Chloe Smith will choose from the 100, 200, and 500-yard freestyle races and the 200-yard individual medley.
That equates to six different girls qualifying in the 200-yard freestyle.
“We worked pretty hard to get them to this spot,” Spriggs said.
Addison Peart qualified in the 5-meter dive and the 100-yard backstroke. Peart flirted with meeting the qualifying mark earlier in the year but made it easily on Thursday.
“We worked all year to get her to that spot,” Spriggs said. “She missed out at the last home meet by one point. It was awesome to see her get that.”
Stella Pfisterer qualified in the 200-yard individual medley.
“I’ll look at stats to see which event will get them the highest amount of points or closest to the podium,” Spriggs said.
The state championships open on Friday.
