Prineville Swim Team takes third at district meet

The host High Desert Swim Club of Burns wins Cascade East District Championship, Lakeview finishes second


High Desert Swim Club, of Burns, swept to victory in last weekend’s Cascade East District Championships.

Lakeview Swim Team finished second, while the defending district champion Prineville Swim Team had to settle for third. Although they won the final regular season meet of the year, the John Day Swim Team finished a distant fourth.

Despite the third-place finish, Prineville Head Coach Raquel Swain was pleased with the results.

“District went great,” she said. “I am extremely proud of the kids.

The Prineville Swim Team had several of the top swimmers in the meet. However, with just 26 swimmers entered in the contest, the team was unable to keep pace with the larger teams from Burns and Lakeview. The team had several divisions with just one or two swimmers entered.

Three swimmers stood out for the Prineville team. Bailey Parrott won the Bogart Award, given to the high point male and female swimmer in the meet. The 17-year-old Parrott won all six of his individual races, racking up 48 points — a perfect score.

“I’m a proud, proud mom, and coach,” said Swain of Parrott’s accomplishment.

He won the boys 15-18 200 free in a time of 2:28.89, then came back to take the 100 free in 1:02.73. Parrott continued his strong swimming with wins in the 200 individual medley (2:44.56), 100 backstroke (1:13.00), 100 butterfly (1:16.51), and 50 freestyle (28.08). In each case Parrott swam the fastest preliminary time, then came back with an even better time in the finals.

Also having strong showings at district were Kami Ackley and Teagan Freeman. Ackley was the high-point winner in the girls 8 and under division taking five firsts and a second. Meanwhile, Freeman won five events in the girls 9-10 age division.

Ackley earned first place finishes in the 50 free (47.63), 25 breaststroke (35.84), 100 individual medley (2:13.41), 25 fly (27.30), and 25 free (21.09). Her lone second-place finish came in the 25 back where she was a close second in 27.50. Her preliminary time of 25.73 would have easily won the event.

Freeman won the 200 free (3:46.82), 100 free (1:39.22), 100 individual medley (2:04.22), 50 fly (57.02), and 50 free (44.61). Her lone setback came in the 50 breaststroke where she was disqualified in the preliminary rounds.

In a normal year, Cody Thurman would also have been mentioned as a possible high-point winner. However, Thurman is in the same age division as Parrott. Thurman took first in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:25.97. Thurman then finished second to Parrott in four consecutive races, posting times of 2:36.22 (200 free), 1:03.52 (100 free), 1:17.20 (100 back), and 1:19.45 (100 fly). In his final event, Thurman placed third behind Parrott and fellow teammate Carson Raymond in the 50 free with a time of 28.78.

The final Prineville Swim Team member to win a race was Emma Hehn who won the girls 13-14 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:36.67. Hehn was also second in the 200 free (2:57.14), 100 free (1:18.30) and 100 back (1:36.85). In addition Hehn finished third in both the 200 individual medley and the 50 free.Photo Credit: PHOTO CONTRIBUTED BY ALLIE THURMAN - Teagan Freeman grabs the side of the pool following the conclusion of one of her races.

Although he failed to win an event, Thomas Burleigh captured three seconds and three thirds in the boys 13-14 age division. His brother, Mike Burleigh, did not fare as well, but still placed in five races in the boys 15-18 age group. Burleigh finished third in both the 200 free and the 100 back.

Jacob Hehn placed in five of his six races in the same age division, including a pair of second place efforts. In addition to his second place in the 50 free, Raymond also placed the 100 free, 200 individual medley and 100 back in the 15-18 age group.

Avery Chamness placed in three events in the girls 8 and under age group, while Carson Chamness placed in all six of his events in the boys 11-12 age group.

Competing in the same age group, Jacob Crumrine also placed in all six of his events as did Abby Curtis in the girls 15-18 division. Competing in the boys 13-14 age group, Garrett McMichael also placed in all six of his races.

Together, 23 of the 26 Prineville competitors placed in at least one event with most placing in at least two events.

The meet was emblematic of the entire season. The Prineville Swim Team consistently earned multiple high-point honors, but didn’t have enough swimmers to overcome the greater depth of the larger teams from Lakeview and Burns. Even John Day finished the season with more swimmers than Prineville.

All in all, Swain was extremely pleased with how the season went.

“Our swimmers dropped times all year, and competed to the best of their abilities,” she said. “I am extremely proud of how the team performed.”
