LT had the state title won heading into the final race, the 400-yard freestyle relay, as long as they did not receive a disqualification; but instead of celebrating early, the relay team of seniors Weston Credit and Ben Breitenbucher, junior Ryan Hammond, and sophomore Henry Claesson won the event to finish the state meeting at the highest possible note, also increasing their three-relay total score to 82 points. Junior Seamus Scotty also finished fifth in state in diving with a score of 459.75.
LT is losing seniors in Credit, Breitenbucher, Chris Phillips, and George Lundgren when they graduate in May, but a majority of the team is expected to return to the pool next year with their eyes set on another run at state.
This is the first swimming state title for LT and for swim and dive coach Scott Walker. Shortly after winning the state championship, Coach Walker was named the ISA Swimming Coash of the Year.
