The Red Devils swim team attended the Carbon Invite, the last meet of the regular season, on Saturday, Jan. 19 at Carbon High School in Price. Six schools participated in the multi-meet.

The boys’ team scored second behind Emery. The girls’ team tied for fourth place with Wasatch Academy and Altamont High School.

“We were missing some key swimmers on the women’s team on Saturday, but overall the girls did good,” coach Brian Pierce stated. “Kiersten Kimmerle PR’d [personal record] in both her 50-free and 100-breaststroke. Zoe Campbell did a great job dropping 10.12 seconds in the women’s 200 freestyle. She also dropped almost three seconds in her 100-freestyle.”

Braxten Pierce took first in the 200-freestyle and the 100-butterfly. Pierce broke his own record in the butterfly with a time of 56.93.

Conner Ainge broke a personal record in the 50-freestyle in .26.39 and he swam the 500-freestyle for the first time.

“Dallin Stucki dropped 2.40 in the 100 backstroke and placed third,” Pierce said. “Preston Barlow had a big drop in time on his 500. He has been working on that race all season and has started to come on strong.”

The swim team will be in Emery for the Regional Championship at 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24.
