Benny Liang repeats as WIAA Division 2 State Champion
100 yard Breaststroke
Benny also finished 3rd in the 100 Yard Butterfly.
Other events Whitewater scored in were:
Seth Bols dropping 2 seconds and placing16th in the 200 I.M . The 200 medley relay 15th, swam by Andrew Gildner, Benny Liang, Seth Bols and Dineth Gunawardena (Jack Downs was our alternate for this event and was ready to step in if needed) also cutting time from there seed time coming into the meet. We had a total of 4 swims at the meet. Two individuals for Benny, one for Seth and the medley relay. Every one of these swims was a best time. Three members of the relay team (Andrew, Seth and Dineth) had never competed at the State level before and it was great to see them step up and own their events. Also providing a good experience for Seth and Dineth as returnees for next season. As seniors, this was Benny and Andrew's last meet (a bittersweet moment for all of us) will miss them next year!
Whitewater finished 15th out of 34 teams.
Benny Liang voted the SLC Conference Swimmer of the Year.
