The CHSAA Boys 4A State meet began on Thursday at the US Air Force Academy Cadet Natatorium in Colorado Springs. Jack Moranetz (D’Evelyn) broke the 100 breast record, posting a 55.83 to come in just under the previous mark of 56.00. Moranetz went 55.28 in March of this year, so he has a good chance of bringing the record down further in finals. Moranetz also came in 2nd in the 200 free, posting a 1:42.26. Ryan Peterson (Wheat Ridge) took the top seed for finals with a 1:40.65.
Kyle Leach (Cheyenne Mountain), a Mizzou recruit, came away with top seeds for finals in the 50 and 100 free. In the 50, Leach posted a 20.78 to take the top seed by half a second. Leach’s personal best in the 50 is a 20.58 from March. In the 100, Leach posted a 45.54, which was also the fastest in the field by about half a second. His best time, however, is a 43.92 from December of last year, which would shatter the 4A record of 44.64.
Nicholas Sherman (Pine Creek) took the top seed for tomorrow’s 100 back final by posting a 50.06 in prelims. That gave him the top seed by nearly 3 seconds. That time was a personal best for Sherman, whose previous best was 51.00 from the CHSAA state meet last year.
