Is the new Worland pool really fast? The new personal bests posted by the Barracudas showed that it’s either the Worland water or … hard work?
When the last swimmers climbed out of that pool knowing they gave all they had, the results showed just how far the Barracudas have come this season. While not in the team running this year, local swimmers proved once again that they can compete with the bigger teams in the conference. The Big Horn Basin Conference meet gives swimmers a chance to compete against local teams from Powell, Cody, Riverton, Worland, Greybull/Basin, Lander and local unattached swimmers. With bragging rights up for grabs, the meet takes on a championship aura and everyone pushes themselves and teammates to previously unattainable times.
The Barracuda swimmers notched 12 more State ‘A’ qualifying times at the meet, and those who didn’t quite make a q-time took more time off their personal bests. New q-times were posted by: Emily Doughty 200 Back and 100 Back; Anna Fuller 200 IM; Seth Fuller 200 Back, 200 Free, 200 IM, 100 Back; Aly Schneider 200 Back, 500 Free and 100 Back.
