Castaneda breaks coach's school record

CHENEY - For the past nine years Grandview High School Swim Coach Rita Uribe has held the school's record in the 100-yard butterfly. She had held the record with a tight grip with a time of 1:19, that is, until this past Saturday.

GHS swimmer Samanta Castaneda broke that record while she and the GHS Greyhounds competed against Cheney High School this past Saturday afternoon. The GHS senior tagged the end of the pool in 1:17.20. This record-breaking finish also won Castaneda first place honors in that race.

This Greyhound also notched a second-place finish in the 100-yard freestyle race with a time of 1:12.37.

Other bright spots on the afternoon shined on Grandview's Samantha Bailes and Viannei Perez. The two finished the 200-yard individual medley race with District-qualifying times. Perez (2:59.10) and Bailes (3:12.83) finished second and third, respectively.

Perez also finished with second-place honors in the 100-yard backstroke race with a time of 1:28.83. That was just behind Cheney's Erin Moselay, who tagged the end of the pool in 1:24.35.

The Lady Greyhounds have one more chance to qualify for District competition, this coming Saturday at the Yakima Valley Championships competition at Lions Pool in Yakima.
