SWIMMING

The Boulder City swim team attended the Last Chance Meet, held at Municipal Pool, on Saturday. It was not a scored meet, but rather a chance for swimmers to record times to make them eligible for regional competition.

According to coach Sara Carroll, about 90 percent of those who swam recorded their best times during the meet. For those who didn’t make regional eligibility, it was a good season-ending meet. It also was a great chance for some swimmers to swim in events they had not participated in before, she said.

Carroll said the girls team looks strong heading into regionals, while the boys may have a bit more of a challenge with bigger teams.

This season, the girls team is looking for its third consecutive state title, while the boys are looking for their fifth.

Regional preliminaries began Tuesday night at UNLV. Regionals will be held at 5:30 Friday night, also at UNLV.
