Senior Greg Rufener has already qualified for the state meet in the 50-yard freestyle, 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke, but coach Ann Bettencourt is hoping to have several others join him.

At districts, Rufener will compete in the 50 and 100 freestyles, as well as join teammates Pierce Beigh, Josh Petersen and Shane Jackson who will compete in the 200 medley relay and will also race in the 200 yard freestyle relay.

Beigh will join Rufener on the blocks for the 50 freestyle and also start the 100 backstroke.

Josh Petersen, Tim Holston and Jackson will each race in the 200 individual medley

Sophomore Garrett Hall qualified in diving.

Jackson will also compete in the 100 breaststroke.

Josh Petersen will race in the 100 butterfly.

Zach Petersen and Gabe Sales both will lead the Hornets in the 500 freestyle. The pair were last-minute qualifiers at the end of the season with 5-minute, 49-second and 5:49.28 entries respectively.

The 400 freestyle relay of Zach Petersen, Sales, Sam Horn and Travis Culp will be the Hornets’ final entry into the district meet.
