BSHS swimmers set personal records during challenging home meet
It was a night packed with personal records for the Bonner Springs girls swimming team Wednesday, April, 21, at the District PE Center.
Top-tier competition was in the water, which denied the Bravettes of any first-place individual finishes, but it propelled many of them to their best times. In all, 15 personal-best times were clocked.
Bonner Springs finished fifth in the team standings with 139 points. Washburn Rural won the team title with 578, Topeka Hayden was second with 444 and Topeka Seaman finished third with 379.
Emily Herre recorded the Bravettes’ top individual performances as she raced to a fourth-place finish in the 100-yard backstroke in 1 minute, 11.56 seconds, and took fifth in the 200 individual medley in 2:38.04.
Toni Stock highlighted the parade of personal records for BSHS with her fifth-place finish in the 100 breaststroke in 1:23.13. Stock paired that effort with a personal-best time of 6:36.26 in the 500 freestyle, good for eighth place.
Cheyanne Miller posted a trio of individual records in the 200 individual medley, the 50 freestyle and the 100 freestyle. Elizabeth Grinter recorded her fastest times in the 100 and 200 freestyle, Lyndie Kill set personal records in the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly, Savannah Lochert had her best times in the 50 freestyle and 100 backstroke and Chandler Clark posted all-time bests in the 100 breaststroke and 500 freestyle.
In addition, Danielle Duarte had a personal record in the 100 freestyle and Bailey Nairn did the same in the 100 backstroke.
