SHS Grizzly swimmers compete against Pullman

MOSES LAKE - Sunnyside's short-handed boys swim team may have dropped a 133-11 decision to Pullman at a meet in Moses Lake this past Saturday, still the Grizzlies garnered some positives from the experience.

Most notable was the performance of Aaron Henry in the 500-meter freestyle race. His first time competing in the marathon-like event, Henry swam to a runner-up finish in a solid time of 6:18.07.

"It was his best swim of the season," said Sunnyside Coach Carl Scott. "He's been working hard on improving his stroke and has really come a long way."

Scott added that for it being Henry's first attempt at the longer race, the Grizzly "...held his stroke together the whole way."

Henry, too, competed in the 100-meter breaststroke against Pullman. He didn't place all that high, but posted a decent time of 1:20.86.

The second of Sunnyside's three-man swim team, Alex Henry, nailed down third and fourth place finishes against Pullman. He recorded a time of 2:13.91 in the 200-meter freestyle for his third place effort, and set a personal best time of 1:11.93 in the 100-meter breaststroke for a fourth place finish.

"It (the 100-meter breaststroke) is his best event," Scott said. "He had a wonderful swim and got a lifetime best for this event."

The third member of the Grizzly swim team, Marco Pellizzari, brought home a fourth place finish in the 50-meter freestyle. He clocked a time of 38.21 seconds.
