Throughout the day, our swimmers showcased their skills and determination in the pool, earning recognition for their efforts.

The day started off with a notable win as Luke Mychalowych claimed gold in the 200-freestyle event with a time of 1:37.98. Mychalowych's strong performance highlighted his talent and dedication to the sport. He's already an accomplished athlete, with achievements including All-American, All-State, and a commitment to the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

The momentum continued as the CC swim team delivered several impressive performances. In the competitive 200 IM race, Roshi Turner secured third place, while Paddy Gerzema finished seventh, showcasing their skills and contributing to the team's success.

Camren Turowski and Jack Szuba made their mark in the 50-freestyle event, securing second and fourth place, respectively. Both athletes, recognized as All-State swimmers, displayed impressive speed and technique.

Szuba continued to perform well, earning fifth place in the 100-freestyle event. Gerzema also demonstrated improvement, securing a commendable 12th place in the 500 freestyle.

The Shamrocks celebrated another victory in the 200 Freestyle relay, with Turowski, Adyn Stoddard, Mychalowych, and Szuba clinching the state championship title with a stellar time of 1:42.61.

Mychalowych secured the runner-up position in the 100-breaststroke event, setting a new team record, while Turner claimed fifth place, both earning All-State honors.

In an unexpected turn of events, the 400 Freestyle Relay team, featuring Turowski, Stoddard, Gerzema, and Szuba, exceeded expectations by clinching the runner-up position despite being projected as the 9th seed for the relay.
