Dixie State freshman Chloe Partsch, an Olympic High graduate, won the 200-yard butterfly during the Trailblazers’ women’s swimming meet last weekend.
Dixie State won the non-Division I section of the meet, 266-153 versus Azusa Pacific in the seven-team competition.
Partsch’s time of 2 minutes, 15.21 seconds puts her No. 6 all-time in the Dixie State record books. The Silverdale native also helped the Trailblazers to a win in the 200 medley relay in 1:50.53, good enough for No. 9 all-time at DSU.
Partsch is the first female swimmer from Olympic to sign a college scholarship and did so in December 2018. Dixie State is a Division II school in St. George, Utah and competes in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. At Olympic Partsch became the first female Ironman by qualifying for all eight individual events at the state girls 2A swimming meet. She went on to win the 200 individual medley at the state meet, a first for a Trojan swimmer, and was third in the 400 freestyle and fourth in the 200 medley relay for the Trojans.
