he Lewistown Sea Lions swim team brought home a third-place trophy from the State Federation Swim Meet by scoring 402.5 points in AA competition. Winning first place in AA was Bitterroot with 914.5, followed by Sidney in second with 497.5. Fourth was Chinook with 375 points and finishing fifth was Conrad with 365 points. The rest of the Federation swim teams competed at the A level.
The state meet was finishing at approximately the same time as the Roaring Lion Fire began. According to the Ravalli Republic, only a few events remained when a thin tower of gray smoke swirled slowly toward the hot sun in the distance by Hamilton. By the time team trophies were being awarded, volcanic-like plumes of smoke could be seen. The fire has caused several hundred people to be evacuated from their homes and at least 14 homes have burned.

Sea Lions set several state and pool records
Sea Lion Alex Wickens (see accompanying story) completed another successful season by setting three new individual state records and also swimming on the men’s 200-yards free-style relay team that set another state record. Besides Wickens, other members of the relay team that set the state record were Noah Majerus, Caleb Russell and Hayes Majerus.
But Wickens was not the only Sea Lion to have an outstanding meet. Pool records were set by Catherine deGuzman, Caleb Russell, Noah Majerus, Caleb Russell, and the men’s 200-yard medley relay team. The Sea Lions brought home nine state gold medals, which included two relay teams.
