In the final weekend of high school swimming nationwide, Colorado is one of four states in action, with the 2018 boys state championship meets.
Cheyenne Mountain looks to defend their state title, but enters the meet with only one top relay seed: the 200 medley. The team also adds top seeds in the 50 and 100 free from Mizzou bound Kyle Leach.
Montrose’s Ryan King is the top seed in the 200 freestyle, entered less than a half second ahead of Jack Moranetz of D’Evelyn. King also has the top spot in the 500 free.
Mullen senior and Denver commit Blayze Jessen leads the way in the 200 IM. Jessen is second in the 100 breaststroke while Moranetz has the fastest entry time there.
Nicholas Sherman of Pine Creek holds the fastest seed in the 100 backstroke. Discovery Canton has the first and second seeds in the 100 fly behind senior Robert Clayton and Tommy Rauchut.
As in the 4A meet, Fossil Ridge is looking to repeat their state championships titles, but has only one of the fastest relays. The team does have a few more top seeds in individual events, however. Senior Danny Kovac, who is committed to the University of Missouri, leads the way by three seconds in the 200 IM and is first in the 100 fly. His classmate Matt Geraghty has the fastest 100 freestyle time.
Seniors enter with the seven fastest times in the 50 freestyle. Atop that list is Lane Austin of Mountain Range.
