North Summit boys swim to 2A title

The North Summit swim team poses with its two trophies last Thursday at BYU. The Braves finished second in the girls meet and first in the boys meet.

After finishing second to the Emery boys last year, the North Summit High School boys’ swim team found its way to the top of the podium last Thursday at Brigham Young University. winning two relays and getting another win by Eisley Scholes in the 100-yard breaststroke, the Braves were able to edge last year’s champions 250-225.

North Summit’s 200 medley relay of Trystin Hellander, Scholes, Sam Crittenden and Eli Crittenden finished first in 1 minute, 49.41 seconds, besting second-place Emery (1:55.50) by more than six seconds. Those four Braves followed that up with a win in the 400 free relay, finishing the race in 3:36.15, two seconds ahead of second-place Rowland Hall.

Though they only won three of 11 events, the Braves were boosted by Sam Crittenden, who finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and the 50-yard freestyle.

South Summit’s McKinley Card finished second in both the 100-yard butterfly and the 200-yard freestyle to lead the Wildcats to a fifth-place finish.

On the girls’ side, North Summit led Grand County entering the final event of the meet — the 400-yard freestyle relay. However, Grand’s team won the race and North Summit’s finished fourth, giving Grand the state title.

North Summit’s 200-yard medley relay team finished second, more than 13 seconds behind first-place Grand County. North Summit also finished second in the 200-yard freestyle relay, four seconds behind first-place Rowland Hall.

The Braves’ top individual performances came from Jennifer Moody, who finished third in the 100-yard butterfly and Abbi Zwahlen, who finished third in the 100-yard breaststroke.
