I was reading the results of the 200-yard backstroke in our local paper, but one of the times was missing. It said that the three swimmers from Willamette High had times of 2:12.43, 2:14.09 and 2:19.66, while from our school Lovejoy had a time of 2:11.93, and Horace a time of 2:17.59. I knew that Fred Foster swam as well, but they didn’t mention his time. All I did know from the other information was that our team scored a total of nine points in the event (where first place gets 6 points, second gets 4 points, third gets 3 points, fourth gets 2 points and fifth get 1 point). In what place did Fred finish?
