Girls’ swimming rising to the top

Head Coach Brent Moore brings the team in for a huddle.

The SHS girls swim team has had a great season this year. At the meet between Sheridan and Riverton, Sheridan won with 116 points to 57. During the Sheridan invite, the Lady Broncs placed third, but made a comeback in other future meets. At the Buffalo invite, Sheridan placed first, as well as at the Douglas invite. For homecoming and senior night, they competed against Riverton and Cody at home. On Oct. 11 they had an invite from Gillette.

The Lady Bronc swimmers and divers have started off their season strongly. Senior swimmer, and co- captain for the Lady Broncs swim team Cassandra Robinson has already qualified for state in the 100 fly at their first meet of the season. At our second home meet of the season, sophomore diver Whitney Migrants beat her own personal best of 214.50, which easily qualified her for state, with a 222 and took first over Gillette. At the dual against Gillette, Sheridan took second with a score of 65. Gillette took first with 123 points.

With heavy practice, dedication, and hard work, head coach Brent Moore says that the swim and dive team has a fair chance to be in the top three at state this year. “They’re just a great group of kids,” says Moore, “they’re really nice, they’ve got great character… and they’re pretty fast, too!”

All of that is important, but most of all Robinson explains, “I just love the team and the rewards the sport brings. The best is how close we are as a team.” The swimmers and divers have great attitudes that help advance their skills as a team.

The SHS Lady Bronc swim season will finish up on Oct. 16 and 17 at conference in Laramie. Those who qualified for state, will compete on Oct. 30 and 31 in Gillette.
