Dolphins make a splash at swim meet

The weather may have been a bit chilly this past weekend, but the Anthem Dolphins swim team provided plenty of heat at their latest swim meet. Both the team and many of the individual swimmers enjoyed a successful event, including recording personal best times and qualifying for the upcoming state meet.

More than 20 swimmers posted personal best times in their events and a whopping 11 swimmers also qualified for the state tournament.

Some highlights from the tournament include:

  • Kiarra Briggs: 10 best times in 10 swims, including her first state qualifying time;
  • Reilly Cox: four best times in four swims, including all four being state qualifying times;
  • Alex Helwig: Finals in all events, including first place in 200m breaststroke and two state qualifying times;
  • Lauren Linneman: eight best times and reached the finals in all events; and
  • James Thomson: six best times in six events and reached three finals.

Congratulations to all the swimmers and coaches on an outstanding weekend and best of luck in the state meet.
