Carbon has already competed in a handful of meets in the young season. On Nov. 9 and 10, the Dinos traveled down to Cedar to compete in a 12 team meet. Competition included big schools such as Davis, Tooele, and Cedar. Carbon competed well with these larger schools with the girls’ team finishing sixth overall.
Most the events had nearly 50 participants and Carbon was able to have a top 10 finisher in many of them. To name a few, Megan Swasey finished third in the 50 free, Kacee Barrett earned sixth in the 100 fly and the girls’ relay took fourth in the 200 free. Tyrca Jaramillo impressed by dropping a mind-boggling 12 seconds in one of her events.
This past Thursday, the Dinos were at it again against South Sevier and Union. They had another great showing with a number of first place finishes. Kacee Barrett placed first in the 200 free, Megan Swasey won the 200 IM and 100 free, Alheli Pendleton took the 100 breast, and Emily Jespersen ended on top in the 50 free and 500 free. The relay teams also found success. The girls’ team won the 200 medley, 200 free and 400 free. The boys’ relay also took first in the 200 free relay.
At the end of the meet, the girls’ team dominated by almost doubling the score of second place Union, 156 to 81. The boys’ team finished second to Union. Coach Allie Chamberlain could not be happier with her athletes’ effort and results.
“I am beyond proud of these swimmers, they are killing it!” Chamberlain said. “They are doing amazing things.”
The Dinos look to continue their strong effort as they host Emery, Gunnison and Maeser at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
