BSHS’ Hook has career day in backstroke
The Bonner Springs boys swimming team finished third at Tuesday's Leavenworth Invitational.
Overall, the team had six top-10 finishes in relay events and four top-five finishes in individual events, highlighted by Ethan Hook's first-place performance in the 100-yard backstroke.
Jacob Kraus, Ryan Cook, Blaine Edmondson and Hook finished second in the 200-yard medley relay. In the 200-yard free relay, Nate Mitchell, Hook, Cook and Edmondson finished first.
That same team went on to take first place in the 400-yard free event.
