Freshman Will Blair was the schools’ top finisher placing 5th in the 50 freestyle, swimming a 23.23 in finals. He became the first swimmer in Scappoose history to place in the 50m freestyle. He was the only freshman in the event.

 

The Medley Relay of Nash Wilson, Will Harley, Brannigan Vogt and Bryant Sharp, swam their second fastest time ever: 1:51.20. Narrowly missing their own school record and placing 6th.

When asked about how it felt to do so well, Junior Quincy Reynolds said, “Words cannot describe how it feels. Truly. This is what we have worked all year for.” Reynolds, was a part of the 400m freestyle, and 200m freestyle team, that set the school records for the events this season. He, Wilson, Sharp, and Blair, will be the only returning members of the state team next year.

 

“This season was so much fun. I’m so proud that our relays made it to state and placed in finals. Spending the season with my teammates, and friends, made it even better, along with my amazing coach. I could not have asked for a better season, or better people to help me get here.” Said Sophomore Bryant Sharp. Sharp, was a part of the school record setting medley relay team, and 200m freestyle team, and this was his first year going to state.
