Season ends with best ever state finish

The Clarkston Swim team took 14th place in Division 1 at state finals this weekend at Eastern Michigan University.
Clarkston earned 63 points, placing them at the 14th spot out of 42 schools at Eastern. This is the best and highest they have ever finished in the finals.
‘We were looking to place in the top 10, so it was disappointing,? said Coach Kenwyn Chock.
Here is how the Lady Wolves did in competition:
Alyssa Vela made all-state in 50 yard free style with a time of 24.3 placing her in fourth place.
Also, Vela placed seventh in the 100 yard freestyle with a time of 53.73.
In the 200 yard medley relay, the team of Christine Sieple, Molli Simpson, and sisters Julia and Alyssa Vela swam into the sixth spot. They completed the relay in 1:51.54.
With a time of 3:44.39, Sieple, Simpson, Julia and Alyssa took 12th place in the 400 yard freestyle relay. They beat their time from preliminaries by 1.14 seconds.
Simpson took 14th place in 100 yard breaststroke with a time of 1:09.77.
Seiple placed 15th in the 100 yard butterfly with a time of 1:02.01.
Danielle Benway placed in 16th in one meter diving with 318.2.
Chock looks forward to state next year. Four swimmers that went to state will be returning next year. Sieple, Simpson, Julia Vela, and Amber Fulmouth will return with a mission to go to state next year and place higher.
‘We could have been better. It will set the bar for next year,? said Chock.
They won OAA with a perfect score this season.
