    The Grand County High School swim team broke 14 personal records at the Cedar City Invitational on Friday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 9. Over 14 schools with 2A-6A classifications attended the meet.

    “We love swimming at Cedar,” coach Brian Pierce said in a written statement. “The kids get an opportunity to swim against some of the bigger schools early on in the season.”

    Cedar City was the second meet of the season and the Red Devils are young, but Pierce stressed that, “the kids are steadily dropping time.”

    According to Pierce, the team is focused on conditioning and technique ahead of an upcoming meet against Richfield, Gunnison and Hurricane.

    Pat Pakkarato went up against 36 swimmers and took fourth place in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:14.37. Pakkarato earned seventh place in the 200-yard individual medley.

    Brendan Moore earned sixth place in the 100-yard breaststroke with 1:15.91 and he shaved a big 12.82 seconds off his time in the 200-yard freestyle.

    Zoe Warren swam the 200-yard freestyle for the first time for the Lady Red Devils and she dropped more than a second off her total time in the 100-yard backstroke.

    Mallory Maughan, Kiersten Kimmerle and Neelie Relph all dropped time in the 100-yard backstroke. Zoe Campbell dropped 2.80 seconds off her time in the breaststroke.

    “All of our relay teams did quite well,” Pierce said. The boys dropped time in the 200-yard and the 400-yard relays.
