Pinto shines for Newton at district meet
Newton senior, two relay teams heading to state
It’s a rare feat in any sport to go throughout the season undefeated. It’s even rarer to be able to stare down some of the toughest competition around and hold up that improbable streak.
Newton senior Matheus Pinto accomplished just that on Saturday at the IHSAA district swimming meet in Johnston. Pinto took the top spots in both the 50-yard (21.37) and 100-yard (22.90) freestyle events and will compete for the Cardinals at the state meet in Marshalltown on Saturday.
Pinto also fired off a blistering 22.48 in the 400-yard relay to secure a third place for Newton, barely edging out Des Moines Roosevelt senior Max Ward.
