Summer 2013 Senior State – Recap

2013 Long Course Senior State Championships

RIO’s Senior squad (ages 15+) competed July 5th-8th at Phoenix Swim Club in the Senior State Championships.  With a tremendous effort from the entire team during the long hot weekend, RIO came away with a 4th place team finish.

The Senior team came away with multiple best times, top 24 finals swims, and NW Sectional qualifying times. Many swimmers also got their first experience swimming in finals and competing on relays at the championship level.

Of particular note: Emily Bley and Zach Posniack both were victorious in winning the 1500m Freestyle; The 800m Freestyle relay team of Dieter Benz, Adriel Huerta, Alex Martinez and Trey Roggenstein broke a four year old team
record by over 4.5 seconds; graduating senior Justin Tran finished 2
nd overall in the high point rankings in his last ever competitive meet for RIO; brand new NW Sectional cuts were achieved by Emily Bley (4 Sectional Cuts), Joe Park (3 Sectional cuts), Maren Rincon (1 Sectional cut), Cameron Clark (1 Sectional cut), Sammy Kreiser (1 Sectional cut), and Nick Quon (1 Sectional cut).
