Noah Basista Takes 8th Place in Breaststroke in Division 1 Finals. Boys’ Relays 13th and 15th
Junior Noah Basista capped off his season by placing 8th in the 100 Breaststroke at the OHSAA Division 1 Swimming State Championships. “This was one of the fastest state meets I have ever attended. Out of 22 swimming events (boys and girls), 10 state records were broken along with one that was a national record. To make it into this meet is becoming increasingly more difficult. Noah qualified for this meet in 2 individual events, the 100 Butterfly and 100 Breaststroke, along with 2 relays. We knew he was going to be extremely busy. On Friday morning, he had a tough swim in his first event, the 100 butterfly, and was a little disappointed with his time and place. However, what impressed me about Noah was how he put that race aside, moved on, and swam an incredible race in the breaststroke to be seeded 8th in finals on Saturday night. Noah swam this again on Saturday night and finished 8th with a time of 56.48.
