For this Play of the Week, we have yet another Waubonsie senior ending his career on a high note in Warrior Arnav Deshpande in the boys swimming state meet. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

Welcome to the FMC Natatorium the site of the 2022 boys state swim meet. Naperville Central Waubonsie, Metea and sectional champs Neuqua Valley all have swimmers looking for top times in the water. Saint Charles North comes in as back to back state champs and is hoping to bring home a third consecutive trophy.

He competes in the 100-yard backstroke and the race is tight until the very end with Barrington’s Griffin O’Leary coming out on top at 47 seconds. Arnav Deshpande comes in second at 48 seconds, but what’s significant about this time is that it’s a new school record. Now that’s how you cap off a high school career.

Each week the NCTV17 sports team selects a boy and girl Play of the Week from the high school sports competitions we cover. Those plays are then eligible for our Play of the Month competition in which you, our viewers, can vote for your favorite.
