Student-athletes and coaches from the Newport High School girls swimming team pose in celebration Saturday, June 26, after the Cubs secured the first state title in the girls’ program history, winning the Oregon 4A championships at Cottage Grove.

COTTAGE GROVE — It was time for the Newport High School girls swimming team to grab ahold of the spotlight.

At the Oregon Class 4A state swimming meet on Saturday, June 26, the Cubs claimed the girls program’s first state championship behind some standout efforts from senior Lauren Bobo-Shisler, freshmen Layla Bretz and Claire Hurty, sophomore Ana Kaldy and senior Lorelei Bretz.

Bobo-Shisler, competing in her final interscholastic prep meet before she plans to swim next school year for Linfield University in McMinnville, earned the Cubs’ lone individual victory, winning the 100-yard freestyle in 54.12 seconds. Bobo-Shisler added a second-place finish in the 50 freestyle. The Cubs claimed victory in the 400-freestyle relay, took second in the 200-medley relay and were third in the 300-freestyle relay.

Newport collected 288 team points. Sweet Home, in second, tallied 243, and was followed by Stayton (160), Marshfield (157) and Baker (137).

Bretz and Hurty proved Newport’s girls will be a force for years to come in their first appearance at a high school state meet. Hurty placed third in the 500 freestyle and fourth in the 200 freestyle. Layal Bretz took second in the 100 butterfly and third in the 100 backstroke for the Cubs. Kaldy contributed a fifth-place finish in the 200 freestyle and a fourth in the 500 freestyle, while Lorelei Bretz took fifth in the 100 butterfly.

The Cubs boys saw their string of three consecutive 4A/3A/2A/1A state championships come to an end, earning a tie for 10th place with Philomath by scoring 69 points. Freshman Sam Postlewait was the Newport boys’ top performer, winning the 100 backstroke in 57.99 seconds, and placing third in the 100 freestyle.
