Juneau’s swim teams neck-and-neck at Region V Championships

The boys championship came down to the wire.

The Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaat.at Kalé boys swim team captured its second-consecutive Region V championship on Saturday night.

The JDHS boys and Sitka girls edged the competition in the lead-up to the state tournament, each winning by narrow margins. On the boys side, JDHS edged Thunder Mountain by a single point, 134-133, while on the girls side, the Sitka toppled TMHS 133-129.

Thunder Mountain’s Noah Loseby and Juneau-Douglas’ Chaz VanSlyke accounted for four top performances, Loseby in the 50-yard freestle and 100-yard backstroke and VanSlyke in the 200-yard IM and 100-yard butterfly.

Other region champions crowned from Juneau included Allie Morgan (100 freestyle), Kristofer Ely (100 freestyle), Jamie Heidersdorf (100 breaststroke), Sven Rasmussen (100 breaststroke) and Tahlia Gerger (100 backstroke).

JDHS’ Caleb Peimann was second in both of his individual events, the 200-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle.

In an instant, the world record holder in the 50-mile walk was thrust into one of sports’ greatest tragedies and a seminal moment in modern history _ the kidnapping and massacre of his fellow Israeli team members at the 1972 Munich Olympics. The killing shocked the world, gave the Palestinian cause an audience and ushered in a new era of global terrorism. Ladany, a Holocaust survivor, the lessons still linger. He says it taught him to “never be afraid” but become “more careful.”(AP Photo / Ariel Schalit)
