Exciting state finish for Red Devil swimmers

by Kimberly Green, Swim Coach

The 5A State Championship Swim Meet was held this past weekend, February 9-10, at South Davis recreation center in Bountiful.  Overall, it was a successful meet for the SHS swimmers.

The girls took 9th overall and boys took 4th.  Two of the boys relays took 2nd with one race 7/100th's of a second behind 1st.  Cameron Green is a State Champion in the 100 meter backstroke.  He also won the overall Individual State Championship for most points, and he is only a Sophomore. 

Boys relay teams take home 2nd place state finish in 200 and 400 freestyle


Both the Red Devil men’s 200 and 400 freestyle relays just barely got touched out at the finish to claim 2nd place state finish for both relays, but those relays were exciting to watch.

The 200 freestyle relay with Spencer McQueen, Cougar Pope, Kaden Jepperson and Cameron Green set a new SHS school record.  The 400 freestyle relay as a whole narrowly missed the school record by only .23 seconds, but Cameron Green’s lead off relay split broke the 100 freestyle school record.
