The Region 10 and Class 3A swimming seasons have officially ended, and there was success to be had amongst all three participating Tooele County schools.
Most notably, Grantsville junior Savannah Thomas placed second in the girls 100-yard breaststroke, losing only to Park City senior and new-state-record-holder Joelle Hess.
Stansbury had more athletes take podium finishes than its two county rivals, sending five into the top-six places at the big championship meet. Junior Zaxton Hillman took sixth in the boys 200-yard freestyle and fourth in the boys 500-yard freestyle, senior Becki Clonts took sixth in the girls 50-yard freestyle, senior Joe Davis placed sixth in the boys 50 free and freshman Kally Morris took fifth in the girls 100-yard butterfly.
Tooele sent off legendary head coach Mel Roberts into retirement after 50 years of dominant swimming. He said it will be tough not to be coaching at the state meet next year because the kids have worked so hard throughout his career. His boys team tied for seventh place at the state meet this year, sending three athletes to the podium: senior Maddie Royle in the girls 100 fly, junior Hunter Sherwood in the boys 100 fly and senior Forrest Nichols in the boys 500 free.
