Molallas Stuart Moore placed 11th in the 500 yard freestyle this weekend in the State Swim Meet at Mt. Hood Community College.
He swam a 5:37.49, a new personal record. It was the sophomores first year to make state, and he intends to return next year.
He went into the meet ranked 12/12, Coach Melissa Georgesen said. As his coach, I am thrilled to see him make it, and do so well. He has set some very achievable goals for next season where he will return as a junior. Stuart plans to swim on our local USA swim team, the Barracuda Club, between seasons. We are fortunate that opportunity exists locally, and he doesn't have to commute to do swim club."
