Pony swimmers return from the break with good races in Hardin


January 6, 2020

As the Havre High swim team put in some good work at the Havre and Great Falls Invitationals, it was on to the Class A Meet in Hardin last Saturday, where the Blue Pony swimmers looked to make a big splash among some of the elite in the pool.

Havre faced off against the Billings Central Rams and the Hardin Bulldogs in a tough divisional matchup, which resulted in the Ponies taking third place on both the boys and girls teams. The girls team put up 115 points and the boys racked up 119 points last Saturday.

Though the teams did not place as high as they had hoped, there were still some good performances among the individuals in the multiple events that took place throughout the day.

Carson Sandstrom made a good start on his day with a first-place finish in the boys 200 yard freestyle with a time of 2:07.99, followed by a fourth-place finish for Megan Miller in the girls 200 yard IM with a 2:42.73. Blakelee Lines finished right behind Miller in fifth place with a 2:55.93 in the same race.

Kobi Burchard took second place in the girls 100-yard butterfly with a 1:16.65, followed by Megan Miller, who had a third-place finish and a time of 1:16.92. Sandstrom added another first place finish at the meet in the boys 500-yard freestyle, where he finished with a 6:14.25.

Senior Jacob Miller picked up a first-place finish of his own in the boys 100-yard backstroke with a time of 1:06.78. Sophomore Hiram Cammon took a first-place spot as well in the boys 100-yard breaststroke, ending with a 1:21.27.

HHS head coach Bill Kilgore and his team may have not had the outcome they were aiming for, but a sound performance by multiple individuals is still a very good thing to see. Even so, Havre will be working hard to push their limits and make some noise as the season continues.

Jacob and Megan Miller continue to impress within their events, along with Burchard, while younger swimmers like Cammon and Sandstrom have proved to be excellent competitors who have a lot of talent and some years left with the Blue Ponies. On top of that, the team as a whole has been putting in a lot of effort to make it far in the year.

Next up, Havre heads down to Bozeman for another big, highly competitive meet in the Bozeman Invitational. The Class AA Bozeman Invitational will take place Saturday in Bozeman.
