SWAMIs Finish 8th at Utah AG State Meet
ROSE PARK/SLC — Race Swami took it's largest team ever to an Age Group (14 & Under only) Championship Meet in Bountiful, Utah and performed "lights out!" — finishing a team record 8th overall (in a field of more than 30 teams from around the state) and scoring the most points ever by the program, with 862!
An astounding five girls placed in the Top 20 in the grueling 400 IM for 11-12 Girls, while the 11-12 Girls' A relay placed Top 3 in all three of the relays held. Many SWAMI swimmers, ranging in ages 10 to 14, finished in the Top 5 for High Point awards in their respective age group.
Several Far Westerns qualifying times were made, as well. In fact, a total of eight Swami swimmers qualified for this year's prestigious Speedo Far Westerns meet to be held in Santa Clara, CA in early April.
"We're really proud of these kids," head coach Matt Finnigan proclaimed. "We had a relatively small team compared to many who finished in the top 10, and we held our own. We had so many best times and so many kids who made it back for finals—it really made the whole experience a lot of fun and really exciting."
