The 2020 high school swimming season saw two Grantsville swimmers repeat as state champions, while Tooele and Stansbury also experienced great success along the way.
GHS senior Zane Thomas won the Class 3A state title in the boys’ 100-yard backstroke for the second consecutive year, while junior Hadlee Begay won her third straight championship in the girls’ 500 freestyle. She also added her first title in the girls’ 200 free, giving her six state titles in her first three years.
Tooele’s girls were the Region 10 champions, and had their 400 free relay team of Sharon Seals, Annalee Beard, Myra Miller and Aspen Grgich finish fourth at state. Grgich was second in the 200 free and fourth in the 100 butterfly. Stansbury’s girls were led by Caroline Wilson and Kally Morris, each of whom medaled twice at state.
The Tooele boys were led by Cade McEachern, who was fourth in the 100 free and fifth in the 100 back. Stansbury’s boys rounded out a successful season that included a runner-up finish at the Region 10 meet with a successful state meet, showing plenty of promise for the future.
