February 17, 2023 — The 3A Boys Wyoming State Swimming and Diving Championships opening day was a record-setting day for Green Rivers’ Brady Young. The senior swimmer set a new state record in the preliminaries of the 500 Yard Freestyle. Young’s time of 4:45.82 was nearly two seconds quicker than the old state record of 4:47.50 set back in 2001.

Young will swim in the 500 Yard Freestyle Championship Finals this morning, as well as the 200 Yard Freestyle finals, and will be part of two relay teams. The Wolves’ Braxton Cordova, a senior, leads after the semi-finals round of the 1 Meter Diving competition. Cordova is the defending state champion in the event.

Lyman senior Jaxon Lallatin had the fastest preliminary swim in the 50 Freestyle.
