Greyhounds Face Greyhounds (and Mustangs) - Pullman Remains Undefeated
Continuing their undefeated season, the Greyhounds prove it will take a whole lot of speed to defeat them. The boys were back in the pool this Saturday, swimming against the Mustangs of Prosser and the Greyhounds of Grandview. Even without their best swimmer in the pool, the Hounds still managed to conquer both teams by nearly 100 points. Taking the first place spot in every event, the boys' swim team is certainly a beast not to be messed with. This season is shaping into a very successful one for Pullman, as they look to go undefeated in regular season for a fourth straight year. Qualifying for state in the 200 IM, Freshman Felix Gomez sped past the competition, winning by almost 10 seconds with his time of 2:05.09. Senior Josh Joireman, although not his main event, swam the 100 freestyle and qualified for state with his time of 50.64. The 500 freestyle was all Pullman, as the only three swimmers in it were Greyhounds. Sophomore Kevin Stanley as well as Seniors Matt Hyatt and Roman Romanyuk showed opposing Prosser and Grandview what Pullman is known for: distance. As they head into winter break, the team will be faced with some challenging practices, but every year the Hounds come into the new year faster than ever. The boys will catch a break this holiday season; their next meet will be on the 5th of January at 4A Wenatchee. The team has already shown what they’re capable of when faced with the daunting “4A” classification, and they hope to emerge victorious against the Panthers.
