View the full post on the BCST site.
The BCST senior boys wrapped up their High Season with strong performances at the WIAA State Swimming Championships mid-February at KCAC.  

There were eight individual State Champions, 47 finals performances, two state records and two BCST achieved. 

It started with the 2A HS State Championships. 
-Archbishop Murphy won the state title with three BCST boys playing prominent roles. 
-Senior Alec Barnard won both the 50 Free and 100 Fly in 2A state record times and was named the “Swimmer of the Meet”.  
-Sophomore Stephen Boden won both the 200 IM and 500 Free 
-Sophomore Austin Barnard took 2nd in the 200 Free and 500 Free.  
All three swimmers were also part state record breaking 200 and 400 Free relays.

3A was a great team battle. Bellevue, Mercer Island and Lakeside were littered with BCST swimmers, and they duked it out from start to finish. 

In the end, it was Lakeside coming away with their second state title in two years with Junior Tom Hutchison and Senior Michael Shum playing significant roles. Bellevue Junior Todd McCarthy was our lone individual winner for 3A placing 1st in the 200 Free.
