  On Thursday, Sept. 28, the Miner Swimmers hosted a triangle meet against Pusch Ridge Christian Academy and Amphitheater High School.  Both the Boys and Girls Miners finished second to Pusch Ridge.  Team scores for the Boys were:  Pusch Ridge 104, San Manuel 55, and Amphitheater 8.  The team scores for the Girls were:  Pusch Ridge 123, San Manuel 69, and Amphitheater 23.  Coaches were happy with the swimmers’ results at the final home meet of the season. 

  The Girls were able to win three events at the meet.   Junior Gianna Sweeney won both the 50 Freestyle and 100 Freestyle against some state level competitors.  Junior Darien Apuron won the 100 Backstroke against good competition.

  The Boys won five races at the meet.  Junior Michael Primero-Predgo swam outstanding in the sprints, winning both the 50 Freestyle and 100 Freestyle in very fast times.  Freshman Evan Apuron won the 200 Individual Medley and the 100 Butterfly after getting the cast on his left arm removed earlier in the week.  Freshman Jayden Smith won the 400 Meter Freestyle in a personal best time.

  Michael Primero-Predgo was named Dynamite Swimmer of the Week for his great performance in the 50 Freestyle.  His is among the fastest Miners to ever swim the 50 Freestyle and is only a fraction of a second from breaking the School Record in the event.    

  Miner swimmers will travel to CDO on Thursday for a meet against CDO, Salpointe Catholic and Desert Christian beginning at 4 p.m.  On Saturday swimmers will swim at the University of Arizona, competing in the Tyr High School Classic beginning at 10 a.m.
