BOUNTIFUL—Both Region 2 (Davis, Viewmont) and Region 5 (Bountiful, Woods Cross) held swim meets at the South Davis Recreation Center this past weekend.
Viewmont took first in the boys’ team race with a score of 538. The Lady Vikes took second at 362 points. Viking coach Steve Doman was pleased with his team’s performance, though disappointed that a girls’ relay team was disqualified in an early race, something he “vows to change” before the state meet Feb. 12 and 13.
Kiana Schwendeman of Viewmont won the 100 freestyle in 57.30. The Gassaway twins showed their dominance in winning their specialties—the 100 breaststroke, 500 freestyle and 200 IM. On the boys’ side, the Vikings won all three relays, with Zach Julien, Zach Sannar, Sam Purdy and Drew Bonner taking home firsts. Bonner also won the 200 and 500 freestyle races. Sannar won the 200 IM and the 100 breast in 1:01.66. Andrew Hunt won the 100 backstroke at 54.98, and Julien won the 100 fly in 53.13.
Woods Cross boys took third in Region 5 with 361 points, and the Lady Wildcats also took third with 292 points. Both 200 medley relay teams from Woods Cross won their races. The girls’ team consisted of Amber Nuenschwander, Rebecca White, Cassidy Ralph and Avery Hunsaker. The boys’ team was made up of Robert Steagall, Mitch Nuenschwander, Parker Nielson and Luke Glissmeyer.
Top performances for Woods Cross included White swimming 1:10.90 in the 100 breaststroke, Addison Morris in the 500 free at 4:59.84 and Glissmeyer swimming the 100 free in 48.98.
