Strong showing for swim team at Bruce Gresly Pentathlon

On Saturday, the Lady Panthers swim team competed in their first meet of the season at the Bruce Gresly Pentathlon in Lander, with five swimmers qualifying for state across 12 events.

“We did pretty good. A lot of our freshmen did really good for their first meet,” said diving coach Heather Christensen. “We had ... a lot of people that were close to qualifying, so I think we’ll get quite a few qualifiers this year.”

At the pentathlon, the PHS swimmers each competed in five events: 100-yard butterfly, 100 backstroke, 50 freestyle, 100 breaststroke and 100 freestyle. There was no team scoring, just individuals, with the top 10 individuals getting an award in swimming and diving.

Caitlyn Miner placed sixth overall and qualified for the 3A state meet in the 100 butterfly with a time of 1:07.24, in the 100 backstroke in 1:13.04, the 100 breaststroke  in 1:16.10 and the 100 freestyle in 1:01.08.

JuliaKay O’Neill took second in diving, placed 11th overall and qualified in four events.

Those qualifying events include the 100 butterfly, with a time of 1:13.89, the 100 backstroke in 1:09.22, the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:20.98 and in diving with a score of 145.10.

Both Kendyl Bohlman and Ashlyn Aguirre qualified in the 100 butterfly with times of 1:17.13 and 1:16.08, respectively.

Rylie Kannard qualified in both the 100 butterfly and the 100 backstroke posting times of 1:14.39 and 1:11.22, respectively.

With everyone competing in five events, Christensen said, “it just gives a really good idea of where they are at too, where they need some more work.”

Next up for the swimmers is a meet in Cody on Friday at 2 p.m. On Saturday, they will be in Riverton.

“They’ll be ready for it,” Christensen said of the upcoming weekend’s competition. “And I think we will have a pretty good year.”
