Beaumont qualifies state swim
Riley Beaumont is headed to the 2015 Boys State Swimming & Diving Championship this weekend.
The sophomore placed first in both the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. Beaumont had a time of 56.28 seconds in the fly and finals time of 56.67 in the back. His back time was a huge improvement over his preliminary time of 59.89 seconds.
“It was kind of a terrible time,” Beaumont said. “I dropped a lot of time in two days.”
The state meet, presented by the Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires, is Feb. 20-21 at the Weyhauser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way. The 2A prelims are Friday night and the finals are Saturday night at 6:30 p.m.
