GHS's Cook earns 2nd, 3rd place finishes at state championship

Rebecca Cook, sophomore at Gilford High School made the podium Sunday at the Div II New Hampshire State Championship Meet. Rebecca placed second in the 100 free with a 58:28 time and third in the 200 free with a 1:58.64. Cook was very proud of her accomplishments this weekend yet disappointed that the Meet of Champions, when Div I and II top 6 finishers compete against each other was canceled for the second year in a row due to weather. Other Gilford swimmers competing at the meet were junior Katie Gingrich and Warren Thompson, senior. Katie achieved a best time on Sunday and Warren moved up his placement after swimming the 100 breaststoke.
