Gregory’s time put him at 20th place in the State of Ohio after the preliminaries on Thursday.

“Tyler Gregory surprised us this year.  After starting the season not being sure if he’d even be able to swim due to an injury, he came back with determination and drive to have a successful season. Ending the season in 20th place, we are looking forward to seeing what he can accomplish next year,” said Eaton High School Head Coach Kajsa Ruebush.
