All of our races were really close." The boys, with five swimmers returning who had swum previ- ously at state, were .able to qualify eight athletes for finals-in seven events, including the 200 Medley and 200 Freestyle relays. DCB Electric Dennis Barnhart 26 YEARS ELECTRICAL EXPERIENCE CCB= I94617 Bonded & Insured Cell: 54I-4o9-8426 Home:541-367-73oz dcbelectricdennis@aol.com The team of Gravy Gunsel- man, Don Rockstead, Jake John- son and Pearce set a school re- cord in the 200 Freestyle Relay Friday with a time of 1:31.90, but got nicked in the final by Cot - tage Grove in that event, plac- ing second. Gunselman, Pearce, Rockstead and Victor Stupin also placed second to the Lions in the 200 Medley Relay on Saturday. Gunselman also placed third in the boys 100 Backstroke and sixth in the 100 Butterfly. Peargin noted that Gunsel- man had cut his foot badly on a bed frame in a hotel room early that morning and had tried to swim with it bandaged, but found that he "couldn't feel his foot." Gunselman said he was hap- py with his performance in the 200 Freestyle Relay but "I'm a little disappointed in my back- stroke and butterfly. It messed up my starts, particularly in the back- stroke," he said of the injury. "I wanted to beat (winner Matthew Clark of LaGrande) in the back- stroke. 1 thought I could. It was fairly close." Pearce set a school record in the 100 Freestyle, swimming 47.69 to place second behind Cor- bett All-American Colin Eaton REAL ESTATE 468' of frontage.

(45.35), while Rockstead was fifth, in 50.26. Rockstead. who started swim- ming as a freshman, said he had a good day. "Personally, I felt good com- ing into all my events." he said. Johnson. who came as alter- nate last year. said he thought the team did as well as it could. "I think we did great." he.said. "Everybody did their best. Lots of people set PRs and if they didn't set PRs, they came extremely close.'" Pearce agreed: "We set two school records. I'm proud of the team more than anything. We did the best we could. That was as good as we were going to finish." Thompson. a jumor swim- ming in her first state meet, said it was a good experience. "1 felt like I learned that. even if we didn't make it to the finals. I can swim with these people at this meet." she said. Rockstead credited the Hus- kies' performance to Peargin, who, he said. is "'a great coach," citing the example of Zane Jackson who had a" torn ligament m his knee and still managed to swim a 24.8 50 in anchoring his 200 Freestyle Relay team at the district race two weeks ago. "He took a football player with a busted knee and made him go 24 seconds in the 50. That's crazy." "If you put in the time and effort, you're going to go to this meet. He'll make sure of it." Peargin said he was satisfied with the Huskies' finish. "The meets are getting tough- er and tougher. More and more kids are starting to swim year round." Another challenge for public schools such as Sweet Home are the rise of small private schools, such as Corbett, which finished fifth among the boys, and Valley Catholic, which was fifth for the girls. "The private schools are start- ing to recruit," Peargin said. "It's a concern." He said an indication of the overall rise in talent is that the time Sweet Home's Sami Webb, last year's state champion in the 500 Freestyle swam to win that event wouldn't have qualified her for the final this year. "There were some awful good kids out there," he said. "An aw- ful lot of those kids swimming out there scholarshiped out of there. For example, Kevin Waller of North Bend. who won the boys 500 Freestyle for the second year in a row, and LaGrande's Matthew Cook. who beat Pearce in the 200 Freestyle Saturday, both clinched full-fide scholarships to Wyoming with their times at state. "They cut them at that meet." Peargin said. "I'm happy with our kids' per- formance." he said. "Even if they can't come back. this is something to look back on. This is an excep- tional group of kids. I'm glad I got to coach them." The team will hold its awards dessert at 6 p.m Thursday, Feb. 23, in the cafeteria.
