Miners compete in High School Classic Swim Meet

On Sat., Oct. 6, the Miner Swim team attended the High School Classic Swim Meet held at the University of Arizona. Over 900 Swimmers from around Arizona competed at the meet in front of a large crowd at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center.

With the number of competitors, every heat of every race would be very close bringing out some great competition.

Miner swimmers had many personal best swims at the meet. For the girls, Cierra Austin swam fast enough in the 100 Breaststroke to set a new school record at 1:20.77 narrowly missing the state qualifying time of 1:20.69.

Kadi Monfred, Jazelle Sanchez, Theresa Sweeney and Fernanda Vasquez all swam their best times at the meet.

For the boys, Wayne Newman set a new school record in the 100 Breaststroke with a time of 1:05.79 on his way to a tenth place finish at the meet. Newman also set a new school record in the 50 Freestyle of 24.09.

John Bribiescas, Taylor Woods, Andy Monfred, Armando Noriega and Alec Newman all swam personal best times at the meet.

Coach Alex Gort was pleased with team performances at the meet ”Swimming at a meet like this can be a little intimidating, but the San Manuel swimmers did great. Many times the distinctive Miner Swimming swim cap could be found leading the heat, a sign that our swimmers are improving at a faster rate than other swimmers.”

Miner swimmers will travel to Canyon State Academy on Oct. 18 for an Invitation Swim Meet.
