The Kayhi swim and dive state qualifiers wrapped up their trip to Anchorage with one qualifying for finals. Kayhi sophomore Laura Sherrill qualified in the 100 yard butterfly with the third seed, and placed 6th in finals. While placing 7th last season with a 1:01.46, Sherrill bettered her time and placement in finals this year with a 59.46 and finishing with 6th.
Sherrill said there was a lot more competition this year than last.
“It was a lot more difficult to qualify this year,” said Sherrill. “Everybody had such great times this year.”
As a freshman qualifying for state, Kayhi freshman Zoe Spencer said hard work got her where she wanted to be.
“I focused on going to practice and working on my stroke technique,” said Spencer. “I wanted to perform as efficiently as I could.”
