FOURTH TRIP FOR LETE
Lete won the 100 butterfly for the fourth time at Saturday’s sectional, and thus, will swim at state for the fourth straight year in his favorite event.
Lete also upset Martin in the 50 freestyle, giving him two opportunities for high finishes at state.
The Bulldog senior is seeded 6th in the 50 free and 15th in the 100 fly.
“I just want to go up there and do my best and try to have fun with it, and hopefully make it back to Saturday,” Lete said. “I’d really like to be in the top 8. That would be a good goal.”
Beating Martin, who finished fourth at state in the 50 free last year, makes Lete believes he can compete with anyone at the state level.
“I like to think if I go there and swim my race, I can compete at a top level,” Lete said.
