The King’s Fork High School swim got its first win of the season over Indian River High School.

The King’s Fork High School swim teams are trending in the right direction as the regular season closes. Last weekend, they swam against Indian River in a Southeastern District meet and were able to get the win.

Coach Johanna Morse felt going into the meet that the team had the ability to do well, and her swimmers went out there and did that.

The season has been a bit different for King’s Fork, having lost so many seniors from last year’s team. This season has been somewhat of a rebuilding year for King’s Fork; however, they have had some bright moments so far this season that they can build off of, especially going into playoff time.

“I feel very positive at this point,” Morse said. “We are one of the smallest high school teams in this area, and we have had several of our top swimmers from last season graduate. So, in many ways, this has kind of been a rebuilding year for us.”

King’s Fork has a couple of swimmers capable of reaching the state meet this season, who could also do some good things at regionals. Cameron Strachko could compete in the 100 breast, while Jack Drake looks to compete in the 50 free. Brynn Starks will look to compete in the 100 back. The boys’ 200 relay team is also looking good for potential placement in the Class 4 swim meet.

Next for King’s Fork will be preparing for the Class 4A region meet.
