Junior Tim Ly was just one student that made it to state. “Overall I thought it was a great season. I beat my times and placings from last year and defended my district title in the 100 fly while also winning the 100 back(stroke),” he said. “At state my goals were to improve my time and score points for centennial. I placed 4th in the 100 fly which is an improvement from last year (5th). I also placed 6th in the 100 back.”
