AURORA | Two individuals and a pair of relay teams from Aurora schools earned NISCA/Speedo All-American honors for the 2015-16 girls swim season. NISCA (National Independent Swim Coaches Association) issued its list of the top 100 performers from across the country who had met the All-American standard in each event during the course of the season and on that list was Grandview’s Mia Wood plus Regis Jesuit’s Amy Lenderink and a pair of the Raiders’ relays.
AURORA | The Grandview girls swim team continued to succeed as much in the classroom as it did in the pool.
Nearly 1,000 swimmers and Olympic hopefuls headed to Omaha, Nebraska, this week for the U.S. Olympic Trials and a contingent of former stars from Aurora high schools continue to make the most of their trip.
AURORA | Overland’s Alijah Halliburton and Smoky Hill’s Rachel Whipple both earned the highest distinction possible for a prep athlete in the Cherry Creek School District, as they were awarded the Kurby Lyle Award for 2015-16.
The Regis Jesuit girls swim team felt accomplished enough this season with the camaraderie and bond it established in the pool. It just so happened that the Raiders’ talent and closeness combined to produce a satisfying, trophy-filled ending to the Class 5A girls state swim meet Feb. 13 at the Edora Pool & Ice Center in Fort Collins.
FORT COLLINS | Swim cap pulled tight and blissfully unaware of the situation, Lindsay Painton capped her prep swim career in fantastic fashion.
Though she ends her prep career with three Class 5A state diving championships, the sweetest was easy to pick for Regis Jesuit’s McKensi Austin.
FORT COLLINS | Aurora individual and relay placers from the 2016 Class 5A girls state swim meet held on Feb. 13, 2015, at the Edora Pool & Ice Center.
FORT COLLINS | Team scores plus championship and consolation finals results for the 2016 Class 5A girls state swim meet held on Feb. 13, 2016, at the Edora Pool & Ice Center.
