While at the Uintah Invitational last week, the Spartans swam strong throughout the meet, with the girls’ team coming in at third and with the boys’ team coming in also at third, 19 points above hometown rival Carbon.
The girls started strong with the 200-yard medley relay team taking third thanks to the work of Lady Spartans Alexis Johansen, Angellena Migliori, Kaelee Hooley and Katie Carter.
BriAnne Bass brought home a second-place finish in the 200-yard free while Carter made a comeback in the 50-yard free, grabbing second for Emery.
