Saxon Swimmers Qualify for State
After a last minute location change to the Kroc Center on Friday, Feb. 8 due to the extreme snow on the way to the planned district meet in Bend, both the girls and boys swimming had an undefeated season in their league meets with boys finishing the season in first place in league and the girls placing third place. After the district swim meet, many swimmers qualified for the OSAA State Swimming Championships to go along with their winning league meets.
“It was definitely different then we were expecting going to the Kroc instead of travelling to Bend,” said Daniel Goldobin ‘20. “it was nice not having to drive all the way down there with the weather being that bad.”
The list of teams that are going to the state competition include the boys 200 yard medley relay, girls 200 yard free relay, and girls 400 yard free relay, along with individual swimmers Sophia Stavrianeas ‘21, Trevor Cook ‘21, Daniel Goldobin ‘20, Olivia Davis ‘22, and Julian Melton ‘21.
“Overall we have been very successful, with a large team and the amount of skill we have, we have grown and flourished over the season as a team and as individuals,” Sophia Stavrianeas ‘21 said.
The OSAA State Swimming meet took place on Friday, Feb. 15 through Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center.
