Mayson Sheldon — Girls swim and dive
Mayson Sheldon had a great month of September for the Braves swimming and diving team.
She started off strong with a first place in the Minot dual, winning the 100 breaststroke and second place in her 200 individual medley. During the Capital City invite she showed more ability by placing second in the 500 freestyle and top 6 in the 200 freestyle. In West Fargo, she was the Braves’ only first-place finish of the Border Battle meet with eight Minnesota teams and several North Dakota teams. She swam a time of 1:10.52. The next weekend at the West Fargo Pentathlon and West Fargo Invite she continued her Heart of a Brave Swim, finishing top 5 in four of the five events and again placing first in the 100 breaststroke.
The Dickinson Legacy Double dual was a great meet for Mayson, taking eight first places — firsts in her two individual events (200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke) and first places with relay team members in the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay. Her times in her individual events were the best of the season so far, 109.68 in the 100 breaststroke (a 2.5 second drop) and in the 200 IM 2:19.19, almost a 3 second improvement from the Minot Dual Sept 7. She is the first on the team this season to be state qualified in all eight of the swimming events She truly had an amazing moth of swimming for the Braves.
