Eric Anderson

Eric Anderson racked up nine state titles and broke three records in the showing at the North Dakota Long Course Championship.

Wahpeton’s Eric Anderson added a trio of state records and 12 state championships to his gaudy resume´ in the North Dakota Long Course State Championship from July 26-29 for the Northern Lights swim team.

His 24.50 time in the 50 free broke Matt Lowe’s state record of 24.96 and tied Lowe’s overall record. He also broke Dylan Sether’s state records in 100 free and 200 free, respectively, along with Sether’s overall record in 200 free and Lowe’s overall record in 100 free.

Along with his trio of record-breaking state championships, he also won four more individual races and five first-place relays.

Fellow Wahpeton student Kenna Remily also partook in the meet. She was part of a state champion relay and also took second and third, respectively, in two other relays. Her highest individual was in the 400 meter free, with a 26th-place finish.

Anderson will continue his season with the Futures Competition in Des Moines, Iowa. The meet takes place from Aug. 1-4.
