LARAMIE — The Lyman High School swimming team was handicapped at the state swim meet due to the number of swimmers who comprise the team, loosing out to the teams with more members.
Although they couldn’t compete with schools like Lander in the pool at Laramie High School, they turned in excellent numbers for the guys on the team. The team, group of eight Eagles, traveled to Laramie for their state meet. In addition to taking fourth, the team broke two school records – “the 200 free relay and 400 free relay, were destroyed at this meet. Congratulations to the Eagles for representing our school,” Zanna Olguin said recently.
The 2021 state swimming and diving championships were held the end of last month, with 3A being the kings of the pool on Friday and Saturday.
As expected, Lander High School took first place racking up 342 points over second place Green River, with 202. Buffalo was third with 181, and the tough LHS Eagles claimed fourth place with 110 points. Small but might proved to be the results of the different events.
Results for LHS swimmers, who placed in the top six places of their events follow.
