  The Miner Swimmers traveled to the Terra Del Sol Pool in Tucson to compete with Palo Verde High School.   The Miners swam some fast times but were outnumbered by enough that the score was never in doubt.  Both the Miner Girls (24-62) and Boys (24-33) were outscored by Palo Verde.

  The Miners won their share of races.  Senior BaiLee Hill won the Girls 200 Freestyle.  Sophomore Hunter Hill won the 200 Freestyle and the 100 Freestyle.  Junior Evan Apuron won the 50 Freestyle in a school record time of 22.29 (breaking previous record of 23.36 held by Michael Primero-Predgo set in 2018) and won the 100 Breaststroke. 

  Junior Alyssa Riekofski swam two personal best times in the 50 Freestyle and 100 Backstroke on her way to 4th place and 2nd place finishes, showing that she is much improved over last year.  Sophomore Marialena Molina shook off the nerves from her first swim meet and had some very good swims, finishing 2nd in the 50 Freestyle and 2nd in the 100 Freestyle.

  The Miners will host The Gregory School at the Mammoth Pool at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12.  The Miners will travel to compete in the Wolves Classic Invitational on Saturday at Chandler High School (8:30 a.m.) which will give the Miners their first opportunity to qualify for the State Championship Meet to be held in November.
