Last Friday evening at Tiger Gym pool, the Tiger swim team took wins in all eight individual events and three relays against the Fountain Valley Danes.
A weekend ago in the Fountain-Fort Carson Invitational, the Fountain Valley Danes swept to victory, winning five of the eight individual events and all three relays. But in that meet the Lady Tigers were missing seven key swimmers.
Last Friday evening at Tiger Gym pool, the seven were all back in action. They accounted for wins in all eight individual events, had a hand in three relay wins, and tacked on four second place finishes for good measure.
Result, almost a no-brainer. Lady Tigers 128. Fountain Valley 55.
"Ark Valley seven" first place finishes were by Swink's Lauren Proctor (200-meter Freestyle and Breaststroke), Swink's Leah Roberson (Individual Medley and 100-meter Freestyle), Lamar's Savannah Tice (50-meter and 400-meter Freestyles), Lamar's Katelyn Moore (Butterfly) and La Junta's Michaela Whitfield (Backstroke). Tacking on seconds were Rocky Ford's Lauren Medina (Individual Medley and Butterfly) and Las Animas' Bailey Huffman (50-meter Freestyle) and Moore (200-meter Freestyle.)
State Meet Qualification times were recorded by the Medley Relay, Roberson (IM and 100-meter Free), Tice (50-meter Free) and Proctor (Breaststroke.)
In a still tentative final hour schedule adjustment, Lady Tigers now plan to travel today (Thursday) to compete against former South-Central League foe Pueblo East.
The nine-school Tri-Peaks League Swimming and Diving Meet will be Feb. 5-6 (Thursday-Friday) at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. Class 4A State will be Feb. 13-14 (Friday-Saturday) in Thornton.
