Moffat County High School girls swimming is coming ever closer to state-qualifying times as the season continues, complete with a first-place individual finish in their most recent meet.
As a team, MCHS placed sixth Friday at the Aspen Invitational, with Steamboat Springs’ Annika Fahrner earning the gold for the Bulldogs in the 100-yard freestyle race, her time of 58.95 seconds marking the fourth race in which she has qualified for the 3A State Championships.
Fahrner also made the cut in the 100 breaststroke 200 free and 500 free back in December and just missed her chance at the 50 free in Aspen, one-hundredth of a second over the 27.50 qualifying time, still placing second in the race.
Coach Meghan Francone noted that numerous Moffat County athletes hit their best times in Aspen, including Marisa Hulstine and Alyssa Chavez in the 100 free and Tehya Johnson and Katelynn Turner in the 50.
Chavez and Rachel Witt each got their best times yet in the 100 backstroke at Aspen, Jaycee Holman and Carson Flint in the 100 breaststroke.
The 200 free relay of Fahrner, Hulstine, Turner and Molly Neton took sixth in Aspen, while the 200 medley team of Turner, Holman, Johnson and Brenna Knez was 12th.
Moffat County swimmers will next attend a meet Friday in Glenwood Springs, followed the next day by the Montrose Invitational.
