The Broncs swim and dive team competed in the Adam Denton Memorial Invite this past weekend at home at the Teton County Recreation Center.
Hosting three out-of-town schools, the Broncs finished in third place with a score of 230, behind Laramie and Lander, ahead of Sublette.
Despite not having any new qualifiers for the state meet, the Broncs saw several swimmers improve on their past times.
In a press release, coach Colleen Rossetti commended the performances of freshman Viry Hernandez, sophomore Vega Sanchez, juniors Rye Hansen and Ani Mason and senior Jensey Stitt.
“This was our first time competing in the same events two days in a row this year and I was a little nervous how the athletes would handle it, but they came out ready to compete,” Rossetti said. “The divers set the bar very high on Friday and the swimmers continued with multiple time drops and best times. On Saturday we really wanted the athletes to improve on their races from the day before by examining what went well on Friday and what goals they still wanted to achieve. That’s exactly what they did.”
“There were many fast races and great dives,” Rossetti said. “The competition from the visiting teams really pushed our team to focus on each piece of their race and push themselves. There was a lot of talent at this meet, in the pool and on the diving board. Our girls competed with heart and composure, and I want them to continue to do so as we move deeper into the season.”
The Broncs will travel to Casper on Friday for their next meet.
