The Hardin Bulldog swim teams traveled to Missoula for their invite last weekend. In taking fourth place overall, the Lady Bulldogs placed first among Class A teams and only Havre beat the boys. Head Coach Eric Hartl wrote, “The girls, competing against the top AA schools is a challenge to begin with, so seeing them rise to the challenge and come out as the top A school really is something special.”

“This was our first time getting to see Whitefish and Columbia Falls,” he continued. “It is also the only time we got to see them before state.”

With the state meet only two weeks away and no competitions this coming week, the Bulldogs will be working towards improving times.

This year, state will be held starting Feb. 8 in Bozeman. In girls’ swimming, Andrea Three Irons placed ninth in the 200-yard freestyle and in the 100-yard butterfly, Ashlee Osborn placed eighth, Cora Wood ninth and Mia Ralston 10th. In the 100-yard freestyle Demi Uffelman took ninth place and in the 100-yard breaststroke Angeleena Lind placed 10th.

Hardin placed sixth in the 200-yard medley relay, sixth in the 200-yard freestyle relay and eighth in the 400-yard relay.

For the boys, Jayden Yarlott placed eighth, Josh Whiteman ninth and Everette Alden 10th in the 200-yard individual medley. In the 50-yard freestyle, Dominic Stevens placed sixth and in the 500-yard freestyle, Josh Whiteman placed sixth and Miguel Lopez 10th.

“I placed some boys in some uncomfortable races and they proved they could handle it,” Hartl wrote. “Whiteman swam the 500 freestyle for the first time and ended up fifth. It is this type of swimming that really makes me excited to see as a coach.”

In the 100-yard backstroke, Caven Herrera placed seventh.

In the relay races, Hardin placed sixth in both the 200-yard medley relay and in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

In the 400-yard freestyle relay, Hardin took 10th place.
