Meet the boys that will be representing Uniontown at the WPIAL Championship held at Upper St. Clair High School on March 6th. This season brought many challenges for our swimmers, with the government and COVID-19 shut down. The team lost a large number of practice days. Most meets were held virtually with no competition in the next lane and no spectators cheering them on. The season had a lot of great races, new personal records and commitment by all team members. The coaches are very proud of all of the swimmers and their hard work.
WPIAL swimmers have to meet a qualifying time for each event they swim and can hit that mark in multiple events. WPIAL set new auto time standards this year and reduced the number of entries per event to top 16 for individuals and top 12 for relays. Swimmers can still qualify with the second (old) time standards, but had to wait till the final submission to see if they made the top 16 cut off.
Each swimmer can only swim two individual and two relays or one individual and three relays.
The following boys have qualified in individual events:
- Logan Voytish – 200 individual medley – time 2:10.81, 100 fly – time 56.62, 50 free – time 24.07, 200 free – time 1:56.35, 100 back – time 1:00.78. Logan achieved the auto time in the fly and the top 16 cut in the 200 IM.
- Jacob Schiffbauer – 200 individual medley – time 2:14.99, 100 breast – time 1:07.80. Jacob made the top 16 cut for the 200 IM.
- Dalton Grimes – 200 free – time 1:59.82, 100 free – time 53.35. Dalton just missed the top 16 cuts.
- Colby Voyten and Josh Miller along with Grimes, Schiffbauer, and Voytish hit the qualifying mark for the 200 medley, 200 free, and 400 free relays.
The 400 free relay with Grimes, Voyten, Schiffbauer, and Voytish is the only relay that made the top 12 cuts.
Good luck to the boys as they compete and represent their school. Go Raiders!!!!
Last One, Fast One.
