Delta Boys Swimming Team

2017 Sectional Champions for 3rd Consecutive Year 


The Delta Boys Swimming Team repeat once again for the 3rd consecutive year as 2017 Sectional Champions.  The boys had an incredible meet breaking 4 sectional records, 4 Jay County Pool Records, and 4 Delta High School Team Records.  Andrew Torres won the 50 Freestyle qualifying him for the State Championships while teammate Jared Hunt placed 2nd and also qualified by surpassing the State qualification time.  Both boys broke the sectional, pool, and Delta High School Team Records.  Andrew went on to win the 100 Freestyle in record time breaking the sectional, pool, and Delta High School Team Records and qualifying for his second individual event.  Jared won the 100 breaststroke qualifying him for the State Championships in two individual events.  Chandler Tucker qualified for the State Championships by winning the sectional title in the 500 Freestyle event and a 2nd place finish in the 200 Freestyle.  Josh Rawls had an amazing performance with a 2nd place finish in the 100 Freestyle and 3rd place in the 200 Freestyle.  The four senior boys (Torres, Hunt, Tucker, and Rawls) continued in winning fashion by dominating the 200 and 400 Freestyle Relays which gave them the sectional, pool and Delta High School Team Records in both relay events.  These four senior boys will swim both relays at the State Championships and they’re respective individual events as well.


The fifth Delta senior, Landon Morgan, took second place honors next to Jared Hunt, narrowly missing the qualification to the State Meet.  Freshman, Daniel Ginder, had a terrific meet finishing in 2nd place behind senior teammate, Chandler Tucker, in the 500 Freestyle along with a 5th place finish in the 200 IM.


The Delta Eagles had an outstanding surprise from Juniors: Charlie Melton, John Moynihan, Cade Orchard, Zion Osner and Gatlin Freiburger as they all had top 8 and top 16 finishes in multiple events.  The Juniors made terrific improvements and have proved themselves to be the next leaders for the Delta Eagle Swimming Team going into next season.  Sophomore Cody Brelage and Freshman Ryan Van Pelt turned in superb performances in the backstroke events as Ryan scored 4th and Cody 15th
