Sophomore JD Jordan and Freshman Max Farlow competed in the Maverick Relays on Friday night, hosted by Mountain View High School. In a unique meet format, all events were competed as relays. Invited teams included Meridian, Bishop Kelly, Nampa United, Borah, and Capital High School. The boys team finished 2nd overall among the six teams, while the girls team finished 5th.
Jordan's relay team of Noah Peterson, Alex Clark, Jordan, and Isaac Demars, won the 2nd event of the meet, the JV 200 medley relay, beating Capital and Mountain View to the finish. Two events later, Jordan competed in the varsity 200 butterfly relay. His team of Tyson Dunn, Jordan, Bryant Cox and Wyatt Bird finished 5th ahead of Borah High School. Jordan's split of 32.29 wouldn't top his medley relay split of 31.80, but with less than 10 minutes between the two races, both were strong finishes.
Freshman Max Farlow made his swimming debut as a member of the 200 freestyle relay. Competing with teammates Rowan Parkinson, Blake Abdel-Monem, and Alex Clark, the team finished 2nd behind Capital High School, solidly beating 3rd place Mountain View.
Jordan and Farlow return to action next week when they compete at the Borah High School Invitational. The meet will start at 5:00pm at the Nampa Recreation Center.
