Morris achieves season-long goal of state record
Montrose’s Logan Morris won an individual state title and set a state record in the 100-yard breaststroke Saturday during the Class 4A swim state championships in Thornton.
Morris’s time was 1 minute, 4.3 seconds, more than one second faster than second-place Kristin Walker of Air Academy.
“That’s what she started out the year to do,” Montrose coach Ellen Erickson said. “For her to achieve it is very exciting.”
Thompson Valley won the meet with 304 points. Montrose took seventh with 148.5.
The Indians’ Christine Hurford took second place in the 50 freestyle (24.67) and sixth in the 100 butterfly (58.58). Montrose placed sixth in the 200 and 400 freestyle relays.
Regis Jesuit’s Missy Franklin, an Olympic hopeful, set an independent high school record in the 200-yard freestyle at the Class 5A state swimming championships at Fort Collins, shedding eight-tenths of a second off the record she set during Friday’s preliminaries.
Fossil Ridge won the meet at Edora Pool Ice Center with 244 points, one point ahead of Cherry Creek. Regis was third.
Franklin also won the 100 backstroke.
