DHS swimmers fair well at state meet in Jenks

DUNCAN — Over the weekend in Jenks, the Duncan Swim team made one last splash on the 2012-13 season at the state meet.

As a team, the Demons finished in 11th place with 67 total points.

Bixby claimed the boys overall title with 275 points.

“Saturday was an outstanding day for our guys,” Duncan coach Andrew Bowers said. “This experience is going to be great in the long run, especially for our underclassmen. Charles (Espinola) really needed this chance to show what he could do. We were able to set two school records, which shows me just how much these guys have steadily improved over the course of the season.”

Duncan’s team of senior Mason Lang, freshman Charles Espinola, and juniors Damon Demar and Brennan DeHart started off the competition qualifying 11th in the 200 Medley Relay event with a time of 1:52.48.

While the Demons improved on their time in the final competition, clocking in at 1:51.29, DHS still finished in 11th place in the event overall.

In the 200 Freestyle Relay, Duncan finished the preliminary round in 10th place with a time of 1:38.15 before earning ninth place in the finals with an improved time of 1:35.86.

For the final relay event in the 400 Freestyle, DHS clocked in at 3:39.90 in the prelims, which was good enough for seventh place.

But, in the finals was where the Demons shined as they claimed sixth place, shaving more than five seconds off their prelim time, finishing at 3:34.15.

Individually, Lang finished the 100 Yard Backstroke event in 10th place with a time of 1:01.84 which was an improvement from his preliminary time of 1:02.13.

Demar clocked in at 24.02 in the prelims in the 50 Yard Freestyle event, but wasn’t able to qualify for the finals.

DeHart finished the 100 Yard Freestyle event in 13th place with a time of 53.74, which was a slight improvement from his preliminary run of 54.23.

Espinola finished the 100 Yard Butterfly event with a time of 1:02.39, which wasn’t enough to qualify for the finals competition.

Poll

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
