ENGLEWOOD – Three Summit High School teams had their Friday contests called off due to snowy weather, but the Lady Tigers swimming and diving team made it to its competition at Englewood High School.”We got on I-70 right after it opened,” SHS coach Laura Graf said after Day 1 of the Jeffco 10 Championships. “We shot the gap before the weather got bad again.”Graf and company were on time for the season finale, which featured stiff competition, the coach said.

Friday’s races served as preliminaries for the finals, which take place today. The top 16 finishers in each individual event advanced.Sophomore Agne Maziliaukaite had a big day for Summit by taking eighth in the 100-yard breaststroke and 13th in the 200 freestyle; Megan Hartman was 12th in the 100 breast; and Harper Kaufman was 13th in the 100 butterfly. The Lady Tigers’ three relay teams (200 medley, 200 free and 400 free) each competed on Friday, but only for seeding purposes because every school gets to send at least one relay team to the finals.SHS’ divers, who were idle on Friday, will begin preliminaries today at 7:30 a.m. Finals for both swimming and diving events start at 3:30 p.m. Today is the Lady Tigers’ final competition of the season before the state meet, which only Sam Gardner (a diver) has qualified for.
