The Cut Bank Sharks swim team with coaches Becky Bohmer and Jeramiah Johnson and a first-place trophy.

Nine Cut Bank Sharks swimmers traveled to state the first weekend in August to put their races to the test against the best in the state. After a cold, 45 degree day on Saturday the team was able to pull off a huge win and they brought home the 1st place trophy for the first time since 2014.

Last year the Cut Bank team placed a proposal with the federation to add the mixed relay event. In these smaller towns it is hard to find four swimmers in the same age group and the same gender to make relays. By allowing the teams to have two males and two females in the relays we are able to get more races in for the meets. The Cut Bank 15-19 medley relay placed second in their event and earned themselves a trip to the podium.

With our season coming to an end, we are already looking forward to next summer and making plans to become faster, and more efficient in our strokes. We are always looking to add more members to our team also, so if you want to come help us defend our 1st place trophy next summer please come join us.
