Juneau-Douglas High School senior Tyler Weldon capped his high school career with an exhilarating podium finish at the ASAA/First National Bank Alaska Swim & Dive Championships on Saturday.
Weldon finished in third place in the 50-yard freestyle, just five-tenths of a second ahead of the other five swimmers in the race. Weldon was one of a handful of Juneau swimmers to advance to the finals on Saturday at the Bartlett Pool in Anchorage. Seniors Cian Hart and Cameron Howard, of JDHS, and junior Micah Grigg and freshman Nancy Liddle, of Thunder Mountain, were among the other Juneau swimmers to advance to Saturday’s finals.
