Tuesday night the La Junta Tigers swim team, made up of swimmers from throughout the Arkansas Valley, hosted the St. Mary's Pirates. La Junta dominated the pool, defeating the Pirates 103-60, winning all three relays as well as most of the individual events.

Savannah Tice (Lamar) was the only double individual winner for the Tigers, winning the 200 IM and the 100 Backstroke in which she qualified for state with the time of 1.12.12. Other winners for the night were Katelynn Moore (Lamar) 50 Freestyle , Emily Moreland (Rocky Ford) 500 Freestyle. Lauren Medina (Rocky Ford) 100 Butterfly, and Las Animas' Makayla Huffman, who won the 100 Breaststroke.

"I was really proud of how the girls swam tonight," said LJHS head coach Lisa Chastain. "It was especially fun to see our new swimmers go from not knowing how to swim at all to scoring in a varsity race."

The swimmers will be in action again today when they head to the Cheyenne Mountain Invitational.
