"We have a lot of new swim- mers, so this was a 'learn how to do a swim meet' meet," co- head coach Chad Youngquist said. "We put our returners in events freshmen aren't confi- dent in, such as the 500-yard freestyle and the 200-yard in- dividual medley. We had the returning swimmers compet- ing in tough races." He said the returners were not in peak form during Shel- ton's 115-31 victory Sept. 11 at Lincoln. "Some past mistakes popped up, but we got to review them on video," Youngquist said. "It was kind of a banging the rust off a sword experience." Senior Hannah Womer started the meet with a bang, however. She qualified for the 3A Nar- rows League Championship in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2 minutes, 50.53 sec- onds. Youngquist said he wasn't surprised with her perfor- mance. "Hannah's a really good swimmer," he said. "She has some talent and she swam dur- ing the summer. I expected her to come back with confidence." Returning swimmers Me- gan Jacobsen and Dawn Martin both competed well, Youngquist said. Jacobsen won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:30.20, while Martin completed the 500-yard freestyle in 9:08.62 for first place. One surprise for Youngquist was the competence the fresh- men swimmers exhibited. "Sometimes we have fresh- men who are afraid to com- pete, but these girls behaved in a way that showed they were ready," he said. "They did bet- ter than I thought they would." Overall, Youngquist said he saw a lot of enthusiasm from the team. "The girls all tried their very best and were very supportive of each other," he said. "I saw a bunch of girls that enjoyed competing."

Runners begin the race wearing white and proceed through six color zones, where an environmentally safe mix of cornstarch and tempera paint is tossed in the air, covering them with a rainbow of colors. To participate, the cost is $45. For more information, contact Development Coor- dinator Barbara Wakefield at 918-7844 or by email at bwakefield@communityyouthservices.org. Compiled by Emily Hanson
