Hazelwood West Boys Swimming will compete in seven Class Two State events beginning with the preliminaries Friday, Nov. 3, 5 p.m. at the St. Peters’ Rec-Plex.

This will come after the conclusion of the Class One Championships so traffic could be slow on Mexico Road and or parking on the Rec Plex and St. Peters City Hall lot may be full and tough to get in, or get out.

Two West seniors, Spencer Campbell and Rami Hanin, will compete in two individual events. Campbell qualified in the 50-yard Freestyle (22.15 seconds, qualified Aug. 26) and 100-yard Freestyle (48.74 seconds, Aug. 26). Hanin qualified in the 200-yard Freestyle (1:49.27, Oct. 26) and 10-yard Backstroke (55.82 seconds, Oct. 26).

Campbell and Hanin can also compete in two of the three relay events West has entered. They include the 200-yard Freestyle Relay (1:33.83, Oct. 26), 400-yard Freestyle Relay (3:34.56, Oct. 25) and 200-yard Medley Relay (1:52.64, Sept. 7). Wes has 11 swimmers on the Oct. 29 roster but names were unavailable.
