Carbon hosted the Last Chance Invite on Saturday in Price. Carbon, Emery, Grand, Wasatch Academy, North Sanpete, Delta and Altamont were the seven schools involved in the swim meet.
Emery had a successful day in the relay events as the Spartans won the 200 medley relay and 400 free relay in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions. They also won the 200 girls’ free relay and placed second in the 200 boys’ free relay. Carbon placed second in the girls’ 200 medley, 200 free relay and 400 free relay.
Kaccee Barrett started off the individual events with a win for Carbon in the 200 free. Haley Guymon answered back when she finished on top in the 200 IM. She would go on to win the 100 breast later in the day to bring her win total in individual events to two. Makyan Nielson (EHS) blew out her competition in the 100 fly by 10 seconds for the win.
The Spartans kept on the gas pedal when Kaellee Hooley won the 100 free sprint. Megan Swasey brought the Dinos back to their winning ways when she ended on top in the 500 free marathon. She destroyed the competition, winning by nearly 30 seconds. Alexis Johansen (EHS) then took the 100 back.
Keldan Guymon had another good day, taking the 100 free and 100 breast. In the latter competition, he won by nearly 10 seconds.
Through the 22 events, Emery emerged victorious, winning both divisions. Carbon finished second in the combined team scores.
“I am just proud of these kids for an amazing season,” Carbon head coach Allie Chamberlain said after the meet. “[Region] is when their hard work will begin to pay off.”
Region is coming up for these two teams on Thursday. It will take place in Castle Dale at the Emery County Aquatic Center and will be streamed live online at the ETV 10 live sports page.
When talking about region, Emery head coach Andrea Johansen said, “Both girls and boys look strong for region. It will be a good meet to drop times for those that still need to qualify for state.”
