Day 1 Swimming thoughts...
By Robert Przybylo
Here I was anticipating getting home around 8 or 9 at night. This is not too bad. I reserve the right to complain tomorrow with all the award ceremonies.
Definitely not the same electricity without Samantha Woodward, but that doesn’t mean Your Friendly Neighborhood Boneman didn’t have a fun time at OCCC’s Aquatic Center.
Thoughts, observations, who shocked, etc, so away we go…
- Standing by my McGuinness winning the 5A girls and Heritage Hall winning the 5A boys. The Chargers were especially confident following the day 1 events. More than anything with the Irish girls is they have someone competing in every event. Not all of the 5A contenders can say the same, and all that means is a bevy of points going to McGuinness.
- Jenks is ridiculous (boys and girls). Talking with Edmond coach Steve Riggs after the meet, he said Saturday will be even more absurd for Jenks. Freshman Montana Gaffney really stood out to me as did Jacob Pearce. You see the names, but it’s great to actually get the chance to see them in action.
- Same can be said for Classen’s Chelsea Ye and Union’s Eastman Holloway. Both are freshman and both should walk away with some titles. Look for a story about Ye in Saturday’s paper.
- Their teams won’t be in the hunt, but what Deer Creek’s Typ Whinnery and Westmoore’s Dakota Wheeler are doing needs to be noticed. Whinnery right now has a 40-second advantage over his nearest 5A competitor in the 500 freestyle and is four seconds better than Holloway overall.
