The Wrangell High School swim team competed in two meets at the Ketchikan Invitational competition last weekend, with junior Jack Roberts leading the team with a first-, second- and fifth-place finish.

Competing against eight other high schools from throughout Southeast, Wrangell's swimmers had many personal bests and cut down their times significantly, coach Jamie Roberts said.

"I'm proud of their performances," she said. "They posted some nice times for an early season meet. They are excited to see what they can do with nine more days of work in the pool."

Roberts said the team had six personal-best times and three relay-best times. "In several events, the swimmers came very close to their personal bests."

Results from both meets:

Alisha Armstrong: 50-yard freestyle, 31.56 and 31.58; 100-yard freestyle, 1:09.88; 100-yard backstroke, 1:31.75 (personal best).

Carter Hammer: 50-yard freestyle, 34.80 and 36.07; 100-yard freestyle, 1:24.25 (personal best) and 1:23.96 (personal best).

Max Lloyd: 50-yard freestyle, 27.33 (personal best) and 27.51; 100-yard freestyle, 1:02.56 (personal best) and 1:03.94.

Jack Roberts: 50-yard freestyle, 23.43; 100-yard freestyle, 50.70; 20-yard individual medley, 2:11.18; 100-yard butterfly, 56.83.

Nate Rooney: 50-yard freestyle, 28.75; 100-yard freestyle, 1:09.33 and 1:08.89 (personal best)

Men's relay team (Hammer, Lloyd, Roberts and Rooney) competed in four relays: 200-yard medley relay, 2:22.02 (personal best) and 2:19.63 (personal best); 200-yard freestyle relay, 1:54.82 (personal best) and 1:55.06.
