WYOMING – The Sublette County combined boys’ swim team battled through another busy weekend featuring back-to-back meets.
On Friday, Jan. 13, the team competed at the Lyman Invitational followed by the Kemmerer Quad on Saturday.
“It was an interesting weekend where we swam two meets against the same teams,” said Co-Head Coaches Kursty Day and Cheryl Grossman in an email. “Friday night in Lyman was a yards meet and Saturday in Kemmerer, we swam meters. We saw some nice time drops again on Friday by senior Dillon Boespflug in the individual medley, junior Ryen Hacklin in the 100-freestyle and freshman Scotty Ring in the 100-backstroke. Senior Owen Nielson is chipping away at his 100-breaststroke, chasing the Adam Denton Award. Owen, Dillon and junior Andy DeClue are all one event away from earning the award.”
Boespflug bagged gold in the 200-individual medley at Lyman, posting a new personal record of 2 minutes, 20.84 seconds. He beat the second-place finisher from the host school by nearly 3 seconds.
Clocking in at 1:11.56, Boespflug earned second place in the 100-breaststroke on Friday.
