Logan Schefault has impressed many. Through his win in regionals and his state, he has proved himself a great swimmer. Schefault won the GAC State Diving Championships for the second year in a row and on Nov. 16. Schefault won state his second year in a row. 

I’m really glad I won state,” Schefault said. “Winning two times is definitely a good accomplishment.”

Schefault competed at the St. Peters Rec Plex. He swam against Francis Howell, Francis Howell Central, Fort Zumwalt and Holt High school. Schefault came in first place against the other schools. 

“I was very excited,” FHN swim coach Joshua Galati said. “It’s nice to see all his hard work pay off.”

According to Galati, Schefault is always the first one at practice and the last one to leave. He works extremely hard to improve his swimming and diving. He works hard along with his other teammates, who were there to cheer him on at the GACs. 

“He works very hard,” Galati said. “He is a leader. He puts 100 percent effort in and does a great job.”

Not only did Schefault come in first place, but he also broke his own GAC diving record from last year.  He holds the point total of 582.8.

“[I beat my] GAC record,” Schefault said. “It was exciting.” 

Schefault will continue to keep swimming in high school and hopes to continue during college. Galati also hopes that Schefault will continue to swim. He sees a lot of potential in Schefault’s swim and dive career.

“I think Logan is going to have his choice of where he wants to go [in the future] because he is that good,” Galati said. “He’s not just the best of the state, he’s one of the best in the country.”
