We also want to acknowledge Eric Thackeray (Sr.) as a state qualifier. He is unable to compete at the state meet due to a recent wrist injury. Although his regular season times qualify for the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle.
To qualify for an individual event, swimmers must be among the top 24 times in the state. To qualify for a relay, the team must be among the top 16 times in the state. It is quite an achievement for a swimmer to make state in the highly competitive 5A classification.
The 5A State Championships will be held at BYU. Prelims begin at 8:15 am this Friday. Finals and relays begin at 1:15 pm this Saturday. Good luck to Coach Huff and the MHS Swim Team. Bring it Spartans! Swim fast!!
