Making their way to the pool at the early hour of 7:30 a.m. every day throughout this summer has paid off for the Newcastle swim team after they took home the title as Division III High Point Winner with 266 points at the Wyoming Summer State Championships in Gillette last month. With a number of personal bests and qualifying times posted, the upcoming winter season proves to be promising for this group of swimmers as well.
Prequalifying in the 200 IM, 100 freestyle and all four strokes in the 50 meter length, Gabe Hoover made a name for himself in the Boys 8 and under, as he placed in a number of events and prequalified for winter state in the Boys 9/10 year old 50 and 100 meter backstroke. Coach Teresa Gross is expecting him to do “very well” at winter state.
