CHS Swim Team Breaks Additional Records at Region


The Carbon High Dinos continued their record-breaking action on Saturday at Canyon View High School in Cedar City.

The girls’ 200-yard medley relay, who had broken the school’s 30-year old record a week earlier at the Dinos’ final home meet, broke the record (set at 2:06.82)  again by 1.57 seconds, setting a new record of 2:05.25 thanks to Megan Swasey, Veronica Ibanez, Sadie Crompton and Kaisha Lott.

Ibanez, however, wasn’t finished and went on to set a new school record for the girls’ 100-yard butterfly by .29 as well as taking first in her heat in the event. The old record, set at 1:06.14, was broken by Ibanez’s time of 1:05.85. Fellow Dino Zaharah Rossi also placed first in a different heat of the same event with a time of 1:30.98.

Ibanez again returned to take home another first in the 500-yard freestyle, finishing at 6:06.44. The girls’ team finished second overall.

The boys’ team took third overall, in part thanks to Tanner Martinez’s first place finish in his heat of the 200-yard freestyle clocking in at 2:39.32. Joshua Rasmussen brought home another first place finish for his heat of the 50-yard freestyle, clocking in at 37:00. Jacob Jewkes would place first as well in his heat of the 100-yard freestyle, coming in at 1:15.19.

While at the event, Dinos Joseph Keller, Andrea Hofer, Harrison Torgerson and Gabe VanDyke were also named to the all-region team.

Members of the CHS Swim team will next travel to BYU on Feb. 12 and 13 for the state tournament.
