All of the training and long hours in the pool paid off for the M-CHS swim team at the conference championships at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. Overall, the team took seventh in the league, trailing just three points behind the sixth place team: Fruita Monument.
This was the best season in recent Panther swim team history, getting multiple people and relay teams back to the finals. Cortez sophomore, Madison VanBibber went on to place in the top eight in the 50 Free, 100 Free, and the A 200 Free relay team along with Elena Cope, Sera King, and Emily Harris. Sophomore Elena Cope also had a great meet placing in the top eight for the 500 Free. Finally, Dolores senior Emily Harris ended her high school career with a top eight place in the 500 Free.
