We had a great meet this weekend in KC at the KC Classic! We have a very young team this year, and after losing six seniors who competed in the state meet last year, we are rebuilding.

We currently have 3/6 of Hickman swimmers (Valley, Hanks, Ragsdell) with state qualifying times in 1+ event, as well as two relays that are close to making it as well (within 1.5 seconds). We also have three individual qualifiers for Rock Bridge (Tschopp, Rhodenbaugh, Stanton), and all three relays.

Rock Bridge placed 8th overall in this meet, with 130 points, 7 points out of 7th place.

Hickman, despite only having 2 relays and 4 individual swims in Finals, scored 13th with 56.0 points (0.5 points out of 12th). Nathan Hanks (10, state qualifier) got sick on Saturday morning, and we had to scratch him from his events.
