Craig swimmers moving on to league and state championships

The Craig Sea Sharks hosted the ABC Open swim meet over the weekend at the Craig Swimming Complex, where several swimmers qualified to move on to state. In the swim team’s final tune-up meet before the Western Slope League Championships, the Sea Sharks had swimmers swim qualifying times for the WSL meet 55 times. Of those 55 qualifiers, 34 were fast enough to qualifying for the seasonal state championships at the beginning of August. It all meant a very successful weekend for Craig swimmers. “When we were giving out awards after the meet, the bag I had was heavy,” Sea Sharks coach Meghan Francone said. “We had a ton of trophies, a ton of medals.”
