Glasgow's Tarin Vandall is cheered on by her coaches, Whitney Billing and Irene Whitmer, and teammate Iris McKean, on the return lap of her 50 meter freestyle race.

Experience reigned supreme for the Glasgow Kiwanis Thunder swim team at the Divisional swim meet in Chinook this past weekend.

The Thunder took 28 swimmers with them to the meet and 22 of those advanced to the finals of the meet and qualified for the State swim meet that will be held in Conrad this weekend.

Dalton Sand and Jordan Kulczyk highlighted the performances of Glasgow swimmers. Sand took first place in the boys 50 free, 100 free and 50 fly for the 9-10 age group.

Kulczyk continued her stellar performance in the pool as she placed first in the 50 free and 100 fly. Kulczyk then follwed those finishes with a second place finish in the 100 free. With performances like this, Kulczyk could easily come back with some hardware in a week.

Sand's sister, Natosha, finished in the top six in all three of her events in the 11-12 age group.

The Johnson brothers [Taylor and Trevor] had excellent showings as well as neither one placed lower than fourth in any of their races.

Also standing out were swimmers Katie Kaiser and Klaire Krumwiede who had four second place finishes between the two of them.

Overall as a team, the Thunder finished in the middle of the pack with 390.5 total points.
