The Sabre swim team rocked the state swimming tournament this weekend at the University of Minnesota. 

The season has definitely been one to remember as the team went undefeated for the whole season.  In the tournaments, they went undefeated in one and in the Maroon and Gold tournament they took home first place out of 12 teams. They also took third in the true team state which is one of the biggest meets in for Minnesota beside the state meet. 

 During sections, they beat Alexandria which was one of the more difficult teams for them to beat.  Earlier in the season, they tied them 87-87. 

When asked about sections Junior Jack Thomas said, “This year has been one of the best we’ve ever had and sections were one of the best meets we’ve had as a team.  Now we just have to look forward to the state meet.” 

At state, the swim team took third in the state with Breck and St. Thomas taking the first and second place. The state swimmers this year consisted of Jack Thomas, Carter Larson, Brannon Bjork, Cooper Larson, Garret Maras, Beau Garman, George Larson, and David Binsfield.

This season has been one that is going to be remembered. We were undefeated, we took third in the state, as well as the chemistry that’s on the team and the brotherhood that has been made.”

According to all of the boys, they all said that “Everyone got along with each other, and we were able to do what we set out to do and what we wanted to accomplish.”
