Swimming recap

Ronnie Hester

The boy’s swimming team consisted of two members, Ben Johnson and Aidan Cogdill. They did not have enough members on the team to win any meets, and it was difficult to get boys on the team since they have to provide their own transportation to Cascade Athletic Club on Mill Plain Blvd.

Last season Johnson swam for Evergreen High School and when he transferred to heritage his sophomore year and has made some very big improvements since he swam at EVHS. Johnson placed at districts and qualified in many different events, he placed 7th in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:23.78 and 7th place in the 500 freestyle with a 6:50.75. In other events this year, Johnson had a 27.21 in the 50 free, 59.80 in the 100, and a 1:19.33 in the 100 fly. This proves that he has made very big improvements.

“Aidan is a new swimmer and learned a ton that he will hopefully carry on into next season”. Says coach Shoup. “I am also hoping that next season there will be a few more swimmers on the team”, He continues on with explaining That having relays is a lot more fun, and it will increase the chances of winning some meets”. Even thought there were only two guys on the swimming team, they still gave it their all.
