MCHS girls swim team uses meet to gauge strengths

Saturday’s Western Slope League Relays in Grand Junction presented a unique opportunity for the Moffat County High School girls varsity swimming team. Head coach Meghan Francone said the event gave swimmers who don’t usually swim on relays a chance to impress in the all-relay meet. “We like this meet because it gives the girls a chance to get good times and it builds camaraderie early in the season,” Francone said. “There are only so many relay events in regular meets and only the top four girls get to swim at the end of the season, so this is an opportunity for each girl to show what they can bring to a relay. “Some girls are better individual swimmers, some are better on relays, so we want to see how they all do when put on a team.”
