PINEDALE – Only three Sublette County athletes made it to the individual final events at the state meet on Friday, and of them, junior Sonya Legerski came home the 3A state champion in the 100-yard breaststroke, staying ahead of her competition by a smaller margin than any other race this year.

Senior Brookley Schamber also qualified to swim in the finals Friday in the 100-yard butterfly. She took 11th place, dropping 1.92 seconds from her qualifying time.

Freshman Shantelle Rule stepped up in the finals from a 12th-place preliminary standing in diving to 11th place on the second day. She has a number of years before her to improve her scores and work her way up the ladder.

All three relay teams competed Friday, with the 200-yard medley team placing the highest at 5th place. Schamber and Legerski joined senior Valerie Vidal and freshman Aimee Gray to score a 2-minute, 3.29-second finish, 10 seconds behind the winning Jackson Hole High School team.

Legerski was the team’s star going into the meet. Her seedtime for the breaststroke was so far ahead of everyone else’s coach Ron Ruckman said something “weird” would have to happen for her not to win. Nothing weird happened, and Legerski took the win, but while her competition sped up, she slowed down a bit.
