There were 35 swimmers competing in this event. Davis, placed 15 out of the 35. “I was pretty proud of myself, I dropped 3 seconds off of my time and it was a pretty successful trip.” said Davis. Davis plans on returning to the swim team next year to make his return to state. Cantrell, the senior representative of Marshfield, went into the competition seeded 30 and finished 21 with the second best time of his career. “I am pretty proud of myself because I was having second thoughts about swimming in my senior year and finally decided to finish out my final year of high school….I was lucky to have great teammates and coaches and I was able to drop my times low enough to qualify.” said Cantrell. One thing is for sure, Cantrell has made his school proud and Davis is going to continue swimming throughout the next year.
