South High Sends Swimmer to State Meet

Dutch Franko-Dynes from South High School qualified to compete in the 2017 MSHSL Boys AA Swim & Dive Championships, which took place at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center on the University of Minnesota campus on March 3 and 4. Dutch finished 11th in the 100 freestyle with a time of 47.85.

The South High School swim team, coached by Jeff Sanders, sent junior Dutch Franko-Dynes to the 2017 MSHSL Boys AA Swim & Dive Championships, which took place at the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center on the University of Minnesota campus on March 3 and 4. Dutch finished 11th in the 100 freestyle with a time of 47.85.

Dutch, who was selected as a team captain for next year, is looking forward to the opening of the Phillips Aquatics Center, as the team currently does not have a home pool to practice in. Said Coach Sanders, “Having a pool with starting blocks to be able to practice starts and streamlining, and just having practice at the same time every day, and now the fitness center, it will be a game-changer for us. I’m so proud of what Dutch, and so many of the other swimmers have accomplished without our own pool. Hopefully, this will bring even more kids out!”
