Torrington swimmers capture one-third of medals

Posted: Wednesday, Jun 29th, 2011

Heather Rose competes in the 50-meter butterfly Saturday at the Alliance Pentathlon. Rose took eighth in the event for the Torrington swim team.

Forty-two Torrington swimmers competed in the Alliance (Neb.) Pentathlon Saturday, against four other teams.

A pentathlon format calls for each swimmer to swim five events. The top three swimmers with the lowest combined five event times are awarded trophies by age group. The order of events included a 25 or 50-meter fly, back, breast, free and a 50-free for swimmers 10 and under and a 100-IM for swimmers 11 and up.

“The Torrington swim team had a remarkable performance and brought home 11 out of 30 possible trophies and 52 out of a possible 150 gold, silver, and bronze medals,” coach Ronda Meyer said. “Torrington swimmers brought home more trophies and medals than any other team. This pentathlon format is very difficult and I am very proud of our swimmers’ performance and sportsmanship. I am especially proud of the 15 swimmers who participated and completed their very first pentathlon. Their courage and determination should be commended.”

For the 8-and-unders, Audrey Perry and Cordell Forkner won first-place trophies. For the 9-10 age group, Chloe Morel and Jordan Malm took second and Brielle Bivens placed third. In the 11-12s, Ethan Creagar took second and Myia Hamaker placed third.

For the 13-14 age group, Catie Berry placed first and Molly Creagar took second. Trae Travitz won second place and Brittany Mitchell took third for the 15-18 year-olds.
