Dafani Bohmer, above, improved her times in all of her events last weekend during the swim meet in Choteau.

The Cut Bank Sharks took to the water this past weekend at the Choteau Invitational. Eleven Sharks competed, including newcomers Peyton Blackman and Cayden Blackman who competed at their first meet. Peyton took 8th place in the girls 8 and under 50 freestyle with a time of 1:27:59. Along with her individual events, Peyton joined Kori Pascoe, Natali Bohmer and Sierra Freedenburg in the freestyle relay that took 3rd place.

Cayden Blackman had an impressive first swim meet as he placed 7th overall in his 11-12 age group scoring 22 points for the Sharks. Cayden placed 6th in the 100 meter freestyle with a time of 1:50:34, 5th in the 50 meter backstroke with a time of 1:02:07, and 6th in the 50 meter freestyle with a time of 46.03 seconds. Cayden’s hard work at practices is really paying off. 

Sierra Freedenburg came in 3rd place overall for the 11-12 age group. Sierra will be a force this season in the water. Sierra took 5th in the 50 meter freestyle, 2nd in the 50 meter breaststroke, and 1st place in the 50 meter backstroke with a time of 47.59 seconds.

Dafani Bohmer qualified for Sunday in all her events and cut time in each. Dafani went from a 1:37:21 in the 100 freestyle on Saturday to a 1:32.94 in the 100 free on Sunday moving her from 6th place up to a 4th place final. 

The Sharks will be traveling to Columbia Falls this weekend.
