Colorado will wrap up its high school swimming seasons this weekend with the boys state championship meets.

4A

Cheyenne Mountain enters the meet with top seeds in each of the three relays. Last year the team won the 200 medley relay and the 400 freestyle relay en route to the team championship. The team is lead by a number of strong swimmers who hold top three seeds in a number of events.

Daniel Carr is top seed in the 50 freestyle, over a second ahead of the next fastest swimmer. The senior also leads the way in the 500 freestyle, showing impressive range. Junior Kyle Leach is the second seed in the 200 freestyle and enters the meet seeded third in the 100 butterfly.

Jerry Birnbaum holds the second spot in the 100 backstroke. In the 100 breaststroke sophomore Sheridan Harder is the third seed, one of three swimmers under a minute.
