SAHS Athletes of the Week

Marcus GreenIt was a busy but productive boys’ swimming and diving state meet for the Section 4AA champion Ponies and sprinter Marcus Green.

The sophomore helped Stillwater to a 12th-place finish in the 200 freestyle relay (1:38.95) with teammates Alex Burback, Alex Percival and Tom Windett and also joined Riley Hollerbach, Brady Anderson and Windett to place 13th in the 200 medley relay (1:40.01). Green also placed 16th in the 50 freestyle with a time of 22.23 and finished 27th in the 100 backstroke, which provides a challenging back-to-back for Green because it occurs immediately following the 200 free relay.

Stillwater posted a 6-3 dual meet record and placed third at True Team state.

After falling in the semifinals, Jordan defeated Logan Crosby of Bemidji to advance to the third-place match. Jordan finished the season with a 39-8 record and moved into fourth place on Stillwater’s all-time list with a 123-46 record.
