An aerial shot of the Glasgow pool shows a typical "v" formation of swimmers during a race. The shot was snapped during the meet held in Glasgow June 24 and 25.

The Glasgow Kiwanis Swim Team hosted their home meet June 24 and 25, and finished fourth overall out of 10 competitive teams. Three perennial powerhouse teams, Sidney, Lewistown and Scobey, placed in the top three.

Head coach Nicole Arnold noted that despite finishing out of the top three, the Thunder had a strong showing at the meet. "The three teams that beat Glasgow all had more swimmers competing," she explained.

Three veteran swimmers led the team with first-place finishes in their events. Katie Kaiser finished on top in the 50m freestyle, the 400m freestyle, and the 100m backstroke. Dalton Sand had first-place finishes in the 200m individual medley, the 50m freestyle, and the 50m butterfly. Klaire Krumwiede took home first place in the 200m freestyle. With their three first-place finishes, Kaiser and Sand were awarded high-point honors in their age groups.

This week's GKST Athlete of the Meet goes to Zavier Urbin. Urbin is a new swimmer to the 13-14 age group. However, despite his age, he placed in the top six in all of his individual events. In addition, he dropped a total of 10.7 seconds in his three events, which produced personal bests in each.

Several other swimmers dropped considerable amounts of time in their events: Damian Cable (-3.22) 100m freestyle; Riley Clampitt (-2.79) 50m breaststroke; Raelee Dowden (-3.97) 200m individual medley and (-11.15) 200m freestyle; Klaire Krumwiede (-10.96) 200m freestyle; Sophia Larsen (-21.19) 100m individual medley; Noah Lippert (1.22) 50m freestyle and (-6.77) 50m breaststroke; Bergen Miller (-1.47) 100m freestyle and (-17.36) 200m freestyle; Emmah Mix (-10.59) 50m butterfly; Kate Parks (-20.68) 200m individual medley; Cooper Reddies (-11.29) 50m freestyle; Ava Reyes (-4.26) 50m freestyle; and Myli Swindler (-2.66) 100m individual medley.

The Thunder will be in Malta Saturday, July 1, and Sunday July 2, for another weekend of competition.
