Challengers News · Scaglione, Relay Teams Make Podium, Challenger Swimmers Gain Experience at Grants Pass


These results may be a little late in coming down, but we would be remiss if we didn’t chronicle the accomplishments and progress of the Cascade Christian boys and girls swim teams. 

At the Grants Pass YMCA, Braedon Scaglione finished second in the 100 yard breaststroke,  second in the 200 yard IM, and the boys relay team took third in the 200 yard medley, and 100 yard freestyle in the Southern Oregon High School Invitation. There were huge fields of participants, ranging from the 6A, and on down the line.

Scaglione’s time of 2:20.23 in the 200 yard IM, shaved nearly nine seconds off of his seed time. The senior clocked a 1:08.62 in the 100 yard breaststroke.

The Cascade Christian boys 200 yard medley relay team of Elijah Snyder, Braedon Scaglione, Will Pierson, and Owen Harrington took third behind teams Grants Pass and Ashland with a time of 1:55.85, nearly a second better than their seed time.

The same quarter formed a relay team for the 200 yard freestyle. With a time of 1:41.15, they were just edged out by Grants Pass for second place.

Snyder scored points for Cascade by finishing 11th in the 200 freestyle. Numerous other boys and girls swimmers, some competing for the first time, swam events at the meet and gained valuable experience under new head coach Christian Scaglione, a CCHS grad.
