Thunder Takes Small Squad to Chinook


The Glasgow Kiwanis Thunder competed at their second meet of the season in Chinook this past weekend. The two-day meet was held June 16 and 17.

A skeleton crew of 10 swimmers represented the Thunder and the team placed ninth overall.

Senior swimmer Katie Kaiser led the Thunder with two first-place finishes and one second-place finish.

Chosen for the GKST Athlete of the Meet was 12-year-old Haylly Turner, who is a second-year swimmer for the Thunder. According to head coach Nicole Arnold, Turner received the recognition after she reached a personal milestone by placing in all three of her individual events for the first time.

The Thunder will be hosting their annual swim meet this weekend, Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25.
