Boys Have Successful HS State

Congratulations to the BCST HS boys who just competed in the State meet this past weekend. Bellevue HS (3A) and Newport HS (4A) were littered with BCST swimmers who all played key roles in each of their schools winning state titles.

Special acknowledgement must go out to the individual state champions. Austin Barnard, a Senior at Archbishop Murphy took home the 2A 100 Fly to close out his successful career at the school. Not to be outdone, his HS teammate Stephen Boden won the 2A 200 IM and 500 Free to add to all the other state titles the two had accumulated over their time at their school.   Dave Makhervaks, a Junior at Newport HS won the 4A 100 Back as well, his first of hopefully many more state titles.

Overall we had 32 boys swim at the state meet, here’s how they all fared.
