Senior Noah Bruns was named Mississippi Valley Conference Mississippi Division swimmer of the year this week when the league announced its postseason honors. Bruns swims with the West High swimming team in a sharing program with IMS. Noah will be swimming at the state meet on Saturday at the Marshalltown YMCA.
Bruns qualified with a pair of relays. Bruns was joined by Ben Berhow, Ethan McAreavy, and Oliver Martin in the 200 yard freestyle relay which finished third at the state-qualifier with a time of 1:27.89. The quartet was just six-tenths of a second behind the top relay, and had the fifth-fastest qualifying time overall.
Bruns also qualified with the eighth-seeded 400-yard freestyle relay with Izaak Hajek, Brennan Keen, and Martin with a time of 3:14.67. Both times were season-bests.
