The Valor Boys Swim and Dive Team had a strong showing at their season opener last Saturday at the Angel Invitational hosted by Denver East at Manual High School in Denver. Valor finished 7th in a field of 15 teams.
The Eagle 200 Medley Relay of Colin Hickmon, Dylan Jessen, Gavin Gilmore and Caleb Kim took 7th place and posted a State Meet qualifying time.
Individual state qualifiers included Casey Fellows who finished first overall in the 1-meter diving competition, and Caleb Kim who posted a qualifing time in the 50 yard freestyle while leading off in the 200 freestyle relay.
In addition to the state meet qualifiers, the team had many personal best-times recorded, an encouraging kickoff to the season – Kyle Birchfield, Whitman Brown, Braden Hunt, Connor Jessen, Colin Hickmon, Seth Lewicki, Martin Brennan, Ryan Bonniwell, and Julian Crouser all started their seasons with lifetime best performances.
The Valor Boys Swim+Dive Team is in the water again this Thursday, March 14, competing with Regis Jesuit at Regis.
