The Carbon swim team has close to 50 swimmers this year. While the girls’ team is looking to build on a strong season last year, the boys’ team is hoping to build from the ground up and increase in numbers.
From the girls’ team, there are quite a few returning athletes. This includes Megan Swasey, who broke the record in the 100 meter backstroke last year. Swasey has lofty expectations this year. Along with improving her own record, her goal is to brake the 50m freestyle record that has stood for almost 30 years.
Swasey is not the only record breaker on the team, however. The girls’ relay broke the 200m freestyle record last year and have their eye on breaking it again. The team is hoping to improve on a successful year, which saw them take region and finish second in state to Rollen Hall.
“We have a big, strong upcoming group of freshman girls that will have a big impact on us,” head coach Allie Chamberlain said.
The Dinos are looking to take region for a second straight year and have their sights set on bringing home a state title.
The boys’ toughest test will be against Emery as the team hopes to continue building the program.
