Thunder Opens Season in Scobey
Kulczyk, Sand Stand Out
June 14, 2017
Glasgow Kiwanis Swim Team (GKST) had twenty-seven swimmers compete in their first meet of the season, June 10 and 11.
The meet was held in Scobey and the Thunder came home with a fourth-place overall finish.
Leading the team with first-place finishes in their events were DJ Rasmusan (50m freestyle, 400m freestyle), Ava Reyes (50m backstroke), and Dalton Sand (200m individual medley, 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly). With his three first-place finishes, Sand earned high-point honors in his age group at the meet.
With 90 percent of the team's athletes dropping time in their events in Scobey, head coach Nicole Arnold said, "We're bound to have another successful season."
This week's GKST athlete of the week, voted on by the coaches, goes to Abigail Kulczyk for her standout performances. Kulczyk dropped a total of 26.75 seconds in her three individual events and anchored the first-place 11-12 year-old girls medley relay.
The Thunder will be competing in Chinook this weekend, June 17 and 18, then will host their own meet in Glasgow June 24 and 25.
