Jerome swimmers have attended three meets so far this season – The Rupert Invitational, The Magic Valley Invitational, and the Oktoberfest Meet (Lava Hot Springs). The team already has some State Qualifiers. Janae Swenson has qualified in the 50 yd Freestyle, the 100 yd Freestyle, and the 100 yd Backstroke. Marita Avery has qualified in the 100 yd Freestyle, the 200 yd Freestyle, the 500 yd Freestyle, and the 200 Individual Medley.
In addition, all of our swimmers had great improvements on their times – with Kendra Ellsworth improving by almost 3 1/2 seconds on her 100 Breaststroke, and Marita Avery improving 6 seconds on her 100 Backstroke. At the Twin Falls Meet, the Girls Relay Team of Marita Avery, Kallee Ellsworth, Kendra Ellsworth, and Janae Swenson placed 3rd in both the 200 yd Medley Relay, and the 200 yd Freestyle Relay – improving their Freestyle Relay time by 7 seconds. That same relay team placed 1st in both relays at the Lava Hot Springs Oktoberfest Meet! The Boys Relay Team of Cole Baker, Jackson Brown, Kaydem Yost, and Drew Johnson competed for the first time in the 200 Medley and 200 Freestyle Relays at the Twin Falls Meet.
The Jerome Swim Team has 2 more meets until the District Meet in Twin Falls on October 31. Stay tuned for updates from those interim meets.
