South relay team is the No. 1 seed

The South Medford boys 200-yard freestyle relay team is the top seed at the Class 6A swimming state championships this weekend at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham.

The meet is today through Saturday.

The Panthers' quartet of Clark Snyder, Lucas Goossens, Ryken Robbins and Aaron Ghiglieri recorded the top time, 1:28.59 in winning the Southwest Conference district title and setting the school record two weeks ago.

Westview is the second seed at 1:29.20, and Newberg, the only other relay under 1:30, is third at 1:29.29.

Ghiglieri, a freshman, is ranked second in the 50 free. His time of 21.52 is behind only the 20.89 of Westview's Morgan Henderson-Kunz.

Ghiglieri is seeded fourth in the 100 free, and is on the No. 4 400 free relay that is seeded fourth. That team includes Snyder, Matt Gardner and Robbins.

On the girls side, South Medford's 200 free relay of Melissa Ghiglieri, Paige Granger, Sarah Reierson and Kelsey Hoeper is seeded fifth.

Hoeper is the only Panther girl in the top six individually, ranking sixth in the 50 free.
