Silver Creek swimming still undefeated


After two more events last week, the Silver Creek High School boys swimming team still hasn’t lost anything they have competed in.

Last Tuesday, the Raptors, which are a combination of Silver Creek and Niwot swimmers, faced Class 5A Broomfield in a dual meet and won, 129-51. In fact, of the 12 events of the day Silver Creek won 11 of them, settling for second in the 100 fly.

Top performances against Broomfield came from sophomore Christopher Wingfield, who won first in the 50 free and 100 free, as well as with the 200 free and 200 medley relay teams, and senior Noah Jepson, who took first in the 100 breast and 200 IM as well as with the relay teams.

On Friday, the Raptors competed in the Mountain View Invitational where they left with first place out of the 13 teams competing. They scored a total of 859 points in the tournament, while second place finisher Windsor only scored 566.

Silver Creek won first in six of the twelve events on the day, with senior Samuel Willet taking first in the 100 back and the 200 IM.

The Raptors now have just two more meets to polish off their technique before competing in the Northern League Conference Championships, first taking on Estes Park in a home dual meet that will also be senior night on Tuesday, then facing Greeley Central and Northridge on Thursday in a tri-meet at 3:30 p.m. The Conferences Championships start the following week on May 13.
