Sean Hoggard placed first in the 100 free in 58.19. Luke Fangman won the 100-yard backstroke in 1:12. 31. He was also part of the 400 free relay team, with Jackson Moore, Mitchell Gordan and Race Armstrong, that beat another Mingus squad for first place in 4:01.72.

Sept. 10, the Marauders headed off to the huge Croswhite Invitational in Chandler.

“We traveled to our first of four qualifiers on Saturday. Swimmers have the opportunity to qualify for state during a qualifying meet and are limited to four during a season,” Wesbrock said. “Our team did an incredible job walking away with 19 Provisional Qualifying times for state. This was an awesome way to start our season.”
