The Hawk Eye’s Girls Swimmer of the Year

Jordyn Boyer couldn’t have scripted a better finish to her senior year of swimming for Burlington High School.

Boyer, a senior at Fort Madison High School, teamed with Elli Boyer, Olivia Kraus and Olivia Ritter to shatter the school record in the 200-yard freestyle relay, turning in a time of 1 minute, 44.18 seconds at a regional meet at Clinton High School.

That not only broke a school record which had stood for 27 years, it also qualified the Grayhounds to the state meet in a relay for the first time since 1998.

Burlington finished 28th in that event at state, capping Boyer’s brilliant four-year career for the Grayhounds.

“I think it’s really awesome we got to go to state,” said Boyer, The Hawk Eye’s Girls Swimmer of the Year. “My whole four years of being on this team we pushed each other really hard. We’ve been working really hard to try to get to that time. I’m so glad we have fast girls and the ones that put in the hardest work . It definitely paid off.”
