Senior Connor Moland Sets Swim Records at Saint Francis

Connor Moland became an integral part of the Saint Francis High School Swim and Dive team during the 2016-2017 swim season.  A transfer from Centennial High School, Connor was forced to compete as an exhibition swimmer during his first season.  During that time, he became a two-time state qualifier and broke three school records.  In his final season, Connor was determined to leave his mark on Saint Francis Swim and Dive team. He did this by breaking 4 more records.  He was apart of the record breaking 200 medley relay.  Connor also broke the record for the 200 freestyle, 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley, 100 freestyle, and 100 backstroke and capped off his career at Saint Francis by single handedly placing 22nd in the GHSA state championship meet, and 5th for the boys in the 1A State Championships.  Connor plans to continue his swimming career at Southwestern University.

Congratulations Connor – Best of Luck in your future swim career!
