Natalie Whalen scored points finishing 11th in the 200 fly and also making Finals in the 400 individual medley.

Jack LeVant placed 2nd in 200 meter fly, 2nd in 400 meter  individual medley, 2nd in 200 meter free, and 3rd in 400 meter free.

In addition, Jack LeVant, qualified this Summer to compete at the World Junior Championships in Indianapolis just before the school year began. He swam on the USA 800 meter free relay, that finished 2nd in the World to the Hungarians by just one one-hundredth of a second (.01).

Finally, Alex Zettle and Jack LeVant were just named, yesterday, to the USA Junior (18 & under) National Team for 2017-2018, Zettle in the 400 and 800 meter free and LeVant in the 200 meter  free and 200 meter fly.

Congratulations to all of these Dragon Swimmers on their fine Summer of USA swimming competition, and looking forward to their 2017-2018 Dragon HS Swim Seasons.
