Holyoke hosts opening swim meet June 4 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

Eight teams including approximately 200 swimmers competed in the opening meet of the Northwest Kansas Swim League (NWKSL) in Holyoke Saturday, June 4.

Ten pool records fell in the opening meet of the season. Holyoke’s Emily Krogmeier set a new record in the girls’ 11-12 100 yd. individual medley, clocking a 1:18.96. She broke Shannon Bornhoft’s 2002 record of 1:19.16.

Keegan Shaw, Seth Watson, Brenna Sullivan and Emily Jelden teamed up to break two relay records in the 9-10 mixed relay competition Saturday.

In the 100 yd. free relay, the foursome recorded a 1:15.74 to take first place and beat the St. Francis record from 2001 by 7.5 seconds. They were pushed hard by the Burlington team, which also bested the record with a 1:15.94 to take second.

Holyoke’s two-tenths of a second win over Burlington puts the local team on the record board.

The same 9-10 team also set a new record at 1:28.73 in the medley relay to beat Oberlin’s 2005 record by 2.5 seconds. Holyoke’s 27 swimmers tied for 4th place with 173 points.

Wray won the meet with 223, followed by Colby 201, Goodland 197, Holyoke 173, Oberlin 173, Burlington 136, Oakley 41 and Flagler 13.

This week, Wray will host the NWKSL for action beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 11.
