69 Snowfox athletes took to the pool this past weekend out in Rapid City for the 2012 South Dakota Short Course State Championships. After 3 full days of racing, Snowfox managed to merge victorious over the other 17 teams from all across South Dakota.
Our athletes scored a total of 4,167 points to capture 1st place for the overall team trophy. Aberdeen placed 2nd with a total of 2,860 and Pierre placed 3rd with 2,708.
Snowfox brought home 20 Gold medals, 27 Silver medals and 27 Bronze medals for a total count of 74 medals. Not a bad haul for the weekend.
A special congratulation goes out to Cora Sather of the Gold group for breaking the Snowfox Team Record for the Girls 13-14 200 Fly in a time of 2:16.71.
Also, congratulations to Chris Angerhofer and Ryan Patrick of the Gold group for qualifying 4 more swims for the Speedo Sectional Championships this next weekend in Pleasant Prairie, WI.
And a special thank you goes out the Bronze group swimmers at the State Championships for really putting forth some amazing team spirit! Way to get behind the team to help us achieve so much!
Congratulations to all Snowfox swimmers this past weekend on a job well done!
