The Emery swim team traveled to Grand on Friday to compete against North Summit, Logan and the hosting Red Devils. Emery had a great day, scoring 560 total team points, pulling out the win over the other teams in a comfortable fashion. Logan grabbed second place with 416 points, followed by Grand with 340 points and North Summit with 233 points.

For the relay portions of the meet, the boys had an excellent day, placing first in two of the three races, and only missing out on a perfect three for three by less than a second. In the 200-yard medley, they received second with a time of 1:56.51, barely behind Grand (1:55.93). But it was all Emery in the 200-yard free relay (1:43.05) and the 400-yard free relay (3:55.05) as the team took first in both events. The girls also had a great day, placing second in both the 200-yard medley (2:13.44) and the 200-yard free (1:57.97). They also placed third in the 400-yard free with a time of 4:07.60.

The boys placed in the top five in nearly every event. The event that seemed to be all Emery was the 50-yard free as seven Spartans placed in the top 10 out of 32 swimmers. Adam Olsen won the event with quick time of 24.93. Tyler Frandsen was a full second behind him, taking second place (25.93) and only 0.01 seconds behind him in third was Trek Petersen. Jamison Christiansen placed fourth (26.06) with Jaxon Durrant (28.64), Jacob Morris (28.86) and Brekker Bunnel (29.61) rounding out the top 10 finishes.
