Eryn Leonard said her performance at the 4A state swimming finals Friday and Saturday in Thornton was “pretty average.” Leonard’s average, however, was enough to earn her a top-10 finish in the 100-yard butterfly and a new school record. The Moffat County High School junior swam the 100-yard butterfly in 1 minute, .92 seconds, to finish in 10th place and top her own school record. “Nothing was fantastic but nothing was bad, and I was pretty happy with how I competed,” Leonard said Tuesday. “When I began (Friday) I was super nervous, but after that my instincts took over and I just went with it.”
