Pool left out of construction
For years the Jackson Broncs swim and dive team has had to resort to using the Teton County Recreation Center to train for competition.
When an announcement was made for the TCSD Achievement Building, set to host Broncs athletes for the next 15 to 20 years, a pool was left out of the plans.
Members of the swim and dive community are scheduled to present their pitch to the school board Wednesday night at 6 p.m.
The Jackson Hole Broncs swim team is one of the only programs in 4A that doesn’t have its own facility. The Broncs girls currently share the facility at Teton County Recreation Center with swim lessons, the USA swim club, kayak lessons, water aerobics and open swim.
A group of Jackson adventure athletes competed in the 26th annual Green River Narrows Race last Saturday.
Known as “The Greatest Show in All of Sports,” the event featured over 170 competitors, kayaking down class V rapids in Saluda, North Carolina.
The Green River runs on a dam-release, creating vicious rapids, perfect for an extreme kayak event.
Jackson’s Owen Doyle broke the top 15 with a 14th-place finish, in a time of 4:33.1.
In the junior division, Luke Landino finished in fifth, with a time of 4:41.4, while Driscoll Larrow (4:43) and Wyatt Doyle (4:46) both cracked the top 40.
Additionally, Jackson Hole’s Nate Pruzan was the youngest and Aaron Pruzan the oldest finishers in the competition.
Professional whitewater kayaker Dane Jackson kayaked to a first-place finish with a time of 4:10.0.
