Boys State Swim Championship Slideshow

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - A Summer Olympic gold medalist added two more high school gold medals to her trophy case, a senior's last swim was a championship with his teammates, a sophomore broke a record older than he is, multiple athletes won two state titles, and 248 swimmers returned to the pool after a COVID hiatus to bring some sort of normalcy to the sporting world during last month’s ASAA state swim and dive championship at Anchorage's Bartlett High School pool.

      Seward senior Lydia Jacoby, a Team USA olympic medalist, won two events (200 IM, 100 breast), including breaking her own state record in the breaststroke and was selected the outstanding female swimmer of the meet along with Homer senior Jillian Crooks, another summer olympian, who won two events (200 free, 100 free); Lathrop sophomore Avery Hafele doubled up in wins (100 back, 100 fly); Juneau-Douglas senior Tytan Frawley anchored the meet ending boys 400 free relay (after winning the 200 free and placing second in the 500), coming from behind to tie Kodiak for the title; Thunder Mountain sophomore Patrick Foy won two events (200 IM, 100 breast), breaking the 21-year-old mark for the breaststroke and being selected the outstanding male swimmer of the meet; and, while COVID mitigations required vouchers for select fans attending and non-racing athletes cheered from the bleacher seats, the event provided a closure for senior high school swimmers and a promise of better things to come for those returning to pools next season.

      Following are the boys top eight state placers and the next best southeast swimmers from the recent state swim and dive championships, with a slide show at the end.
