On Tuesday, 1/23, Girls Swim and Dive traveled down to Fountain Ft. Carson High School where they destroyed the competition with a score 196 to 111. The Cougars had winning performances in the 50 freestyle, the 200 IM, the 100 freestyle, the 200 freestyle relay, the 100 breaststroke, the 400 free relay, and the 500 freestyle; they practically swept the meet.

There was a brief intermission when the Dive team also beat Fountain-Fort Carson in a three dive meet with Anika Nelsestuen, 9, and Ariana Bower, 9, conquering their zero divers. Although our dive team has very few members, they still dominated.

With an excellent performance the week after at Colorado Springs Metro League placing 4th, the Cougars move onto State hoping for podium-worthy performances.

So far, the Cougars have qualified three relays with Mia Shaeffer, 11, qualifying in the 100 backstroke, 200 IM, and 100 fly, Leanne Telle, 9, in the 100 backstroke, 500 freestyle, 200 freestyle, Erin Field, 9, in the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle, and Stephanie Boyd, 9, in the 50 freestyle. The only event that Coronado has not qualified a swimmer in is the 100 breaststroke, and they are excited about their two days full of competition. However, each person can only swim four events at state, so for those who are qualified in more, there are some tough choices ahead.

“Our hope for state is to just qualify for finals on Saturday and to swim some personal bests. The goal is to just take in the atmosphere of the meet and see all the amazing swimmers who also qualified,” stated Lindsey Murray, 12.

Come support your Coronado Girls Swim and Dive team this weekend at their last and most important meet of the season!
