Last Wednesday, Oct. 19, was the Butte View League Championship at Durham. Although the Warriors were ready to win, a cold swam through the team keeping many from traveling and competing. A less-than-ideal way to end the season, but the handful of Warriors who did compete showcased Winters High School’s reputation of quality of quantity.
In the women’s 50-yard freestyle, Mahalia Lanfranco was narrowly defeated by hundredths of a second. She clocked in a 30.63 for second place while the first-place time was 30.02 seconds.
Meanwhile, in the men’s 50-yard freestyle, John Rominger took home fourth with a time of 26.08.
In the women’s 100-yard freestyle, Madeline MacMahon smoked the competition finishing first with a 56.71. The second-place competitor floated in at 1:04.11.
John Rominger also represented in the 100-yard freestyle taking home fourth with a time of 59.41.
In the women’s 100-yard breaststroke, Lanfranco took home bronze for the Warriors finishing with a 1:29.27.
Kenneth Matheson took home gold for the Warriors in the men’s 100-yard freestyle finishing with a 1:15.55.
Although illness waylaid the Warriors this time, head coach Melanie Ellison is hopeful they’ll be rested, healthy and ready to compete in the sectional championship on Oct. 26.
