Cook to join Cowboys’ corral in pool

La Grande’s Matt Cook won two high school state titles last year and will join a strong University of Wyoming swim team next year.
La Grande’s Matt Cook won two high school state titles last year and will join a strong University of Wyoming swim team next year.

Matt Cook had a career to remember at La Grande High School.

And after capturing two state swim titles this past season, Cook is moving on to the next level.

The recent LHS graduate will join the University of Wyoming swim team next season.

Cook won state titles in the 200 freestyle and the 100 backstroke last year while leading the La Grande boys swim team to a third-place finish at the state meet.

He has placed in the top five at the high school championships in every event he has swam since his freshman year.

Cook also keeps up his work in the classroom and was named a member of the National Honor Society.

He plans on studying engineering at UW.

Cook has been a member of the La Grande Swim Club for many years and has racked up more than 20 state
championship titles.

He attended junior nationals at Stanford in 2011. “Matt follows a long group of Oregonians to join Cowboy Swimming,” Wyoming coach Tom Johnson told
wyomingathletics.com.

“Matt is a talented backstroker and middle-distance freestyler who has really shown a lot of improvement in the last year. 

“He should really contribute to our medley relays.”

The Cowboys had a third-place finish at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships this season, with Johnson earning coach of the year honors for the fourth time.
