Falcons' Foy Breaks Pool Records at Ketchikan Swim Meet

    Thunder Mountain and Juneau-Douglas Yadaa.at Kalé were among five high schools participating in the Ketchikan Invitational Swim & Dive Meet last week.

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Thunder Mountain High School sophomore swimmer Patrick Foy set Ketchikan’s Gateway Aquatic Center on fire last week with three of the fastest times the Kings GAC water has seen between the lane lines.

      Foy hit 51.67 seconds in the 100 fly, one minute 43.86 in the 200 free and 4:49.56 in the 500 free.

      The Thunder Mountain boys and girls swim teams topped the combined two-day standings with Juneau-Douglas Yadaa.at Kalé second, Ketchikan third, Craig fourth, Wrangell fifth and Petersburg sixth.

      This was the first non-virtual meet in a year due to the novel coronavirus. Spectators were not allowed inside the aquatic center, as the Ketchikan School District’s operating risk level was “high,” and it was a school sponsored event. Participants wore masks around the pool deck when they were not competing in an event.
