Century Patriots Swimming & Diving



Bismarck, North Dakota – Bismarck hosts the State Swimming & Diving Meet on Friday and Saturday. Century recently won the West Region.

The Patriots won their first area title since 2020 as Century beat Minot by 4.5 points.

Spencer Wheeling, Century Head Coach, “Definitely when you bring in the East Region it shakes up the whole thing. It just makes the competition tighter, which we relay back to the girls, every finish, every turn, everything just has to be that much more important and basically perfect. A lot of those races are going to come down to that final touch whether you are in the consolation final, the A final, or just a matter of 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in your finals.”

Prelims are Friday and championship races are Saturday.

Wheeling, “To me Friday is a little more important than Saturday. You have to go out and race time on Friday. So, without the time and getting yourself into that chance to score on the second day, there is no second day. So, we just look at it as just Friday, it’s not a two-day meet. Once we’re done with Friday then now, we’re here on Saturday and now you’re racing for place. You don’t have to worry about your time anymore it’s try and go out and get as many points as you can for your team as possible.”

West Fargo Sheyenne defends its title.
