Sports Spotlight on Dylan Sether | Video| 2/27/2013
"I like doing endurance sports because they test ones mental capacity and physical capacity."
Sether is two time state champion and captain for the Patriots boy`s swim team.
"He`s a student of swimming. he reads everything he can. He`s always looking at stroke mechanics, stroke techniques, always kind of self evaluating himself," said Century head coach Dennis Kemmesat.
"I haven`t seen anybody training like him or be able to accomplish or do the times he does in the water. It`s amazing to practice with him just trying to stay with him is nearly impossible," added senior Collin Kemmesat.
Sether is so fast in the pool, he broke the state record in the 200 meter freestyle at last years state swim meet.
"It was crazy to watch, he`s an incredible athlete and hard worker and you see it pay off in the pool and it was just phenomenal to watch him do it," said fellow senior Taylor Crothers.
"It felt really great to break the record finally," recalled Sether. "I was going for it the last two years, and I broke it and it was also great to know that I could go that fast in a poll I don`t like to swim in."
Teammates say it`s not just Dylan himself that shines in the pool.
"He really likes his sparkly suits, he enjoys wearing those and he usually change them out once or twice a week. Red, silver, gold," explained Collin Kemmesat.
"It`s kind of reflective of my personality in the water and how I act along with the team and stuff," said Sether.
But what really keeps Sether motivated in the water is the workouts.
"They`re really hard. I`ve talked to other swimmers about it and a lot of them say how they don`t know how I do those practices because they`re like thats one of the craziest things I`ve ever heard anyone do. I just like that advantage because if they cant do it then who else can."
The state swimming and diving meet is this Friday and Saturday in Bismarck. Dylan enters state with the top time in the 200 freestyle and the 100 butterfly.
