Seward freshman posts unofficial state record

Seward freshman posts unofficial state record

Seward freshman Lydia Jacoby continued her torrid run of domination in the pool Saturday with an unofficial state record at the Seward Invite.

Jacoby blazed to a victory in the girls 100 breaststroke race in a time of 1 minutes, 4.44 seconds, eclipsing the current state mark of 1:04.50 by Kodiak’s Laura Griffing, set in 2010.

The record is not official since state records can only be set at the season-ending state meet.

Homer’s Madison Story won the girls 100 butterfly and the 100 backstroke, while Jacoby took wins in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke. Kenai’s Riley Reese also picked up two wins in the girls 200 and 100 freestyle races.

On the boys side, Homer’s Teddy Handley, Clayton Arndt and Kenai’s Savaii Heaven took six of the eight individual wins with two apiece. Handley collected wins in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke, Arndt won the 200 and 100 freestyles, and Heaven secured victories in the 100 butterfly and the 500 free.
