Desert Thunder swimmers are representing across the western states this weekend with 79 teammates in the JO's, hosted by us, in Arizona and with our 5 Sectional qualifiers in Gresham, OR!
At JO's the team is in 3rd place after day 1. Congratulations to Ailani Ika, Hannah Aguila, Ashlyn Hutchinson, and Mia Thomas for picking up new A qualifying times for the Age Group State Championships!
Up north in Oregon, the boys 200 medley relay team of Dylan Edge, Ean Peterson, Vince Hemingway, and james Karam moved up several spots to put points on the board. The 800 Free Relay team of Hemingway, Karam, Kyle Gundersen, and Peterson also scored. Individually, Edge scored in the B final of the 200 back and sits only 0.10 shy of his Junior National qualification.
