Swimming their way to Districts

Swimming their way to Districts

The Ashland High School Grizzly swimmers competed against the Mountain View Cougars, Bend Lava Bears and Summit Storm in Bend, Oregon, on Friday, February 10.  The team drove up through the bitter cold and immense mountains to hit the water at 4:15pm.  Only then did the swimming prelims begin.

Each competitor was able to enter up to two individual events, and on Friday, swimmers competed in  JV events for the 50-free, 100-free, 50-fly, 50-back and 50-breast. Unfortunately, the swimming ended there for many Grizzlies, as there were no finals for JV events.

In the Varsity events, first through eighth place ribbons were awarded to swimmers. Some of the Grizzlies aqua-warriors who placed well were Gus Simms, who stroked his way to a first place finish in the 100-butterfly, and Sheralyn Shumway, who glided to a third place finish in the 50-freestyle.

The AHS boys and girls teams won second overall.
