GILLETTE—Jackson repeated as 3A champions, and Lyman swimmers ended their season strong at the state meet in Gillette Oct. 30-31 and Nov. 1.
Head coach Jim Levine said, “The girls performed well at the state level. We didn’t place as high as we had hoped, but the girls swam well. All of the girls had personal lifetime best-times, and McCaslynn was our top swimmer placing wise. We had good swims from Traci Rollins and Kaci Fotheringham along with the whole team. They all did their best, it’s not easy to have to taper before conference to get qualifying times and then have to taper again for the state meet. I had good assistant coaches, Marissa Taylor and Reagin Haycock, who worked well with the kids and helped out tremendously.
All though we lose six seniors, we are at a point where the girls can compete with one another and find competition nightly. The program is building. There are 54 middle school swimmers and if we can pick up a few of those girls next year we can be a competitive team.”
