The Sublette County girls’ swim team had three competitions in three days last week, including a home triangular on Friday.
“We had one bunch of tired girls after three consecutive days of competition,” head coach Gregory Gray said.
After all of the races, Sublette scored two teams titles and missed a third by two points.
Sublette began the busy stretch at the Rock Springs Invitational Thursday. Only five points separated the top three teams, but Evanston ended up winning the meet with 281 points. Sublette County scored 279 to take second, followed by Rock Springs (276), Rawlins (194) and Kemmerer (147).
“We came out of the meet seeing our needs being met,” Gray said. “All the girls gave good efforts with one more girl qualifying.”
On Friday, Sublette County hosted a home meet in Big Piney, taking on Lyman and Kemmerer. Sublette did laps around the competition, scoring the victory with 450 points, followed by Lyman (296) and Kemmerer (166).
“We had a good line up against these two schools,” Gray said. “We won every relay and merely out numbered them. We have 28 girls out for swimming and diving. There are three juniors and three seniors, which means we have eight sophomores and 14 freshmen. We may be young, but have a bunch of talent. We as coaches hope to get all we can from them all. If we do we will do well at state.”
Saturday, Sublette faced the same two teams again, this time at Kemmerer Invitational in Lyman. Kemmerer’s pool is being repaired so the team has been practicing in Evanston.
Sublette wasn’t quite as dominant Saturday, but still won the meet with 212 points. Lyman scored 194.5 and Kemmerer scored 111.5.
This week, the girls’ swimming and diving team has one just one meet, Saturday in Green River.
“This will be a great opportunity to work on swimming and diving better by using our practice time,” Gray said.
