FARMER’S KORNER – Draining, grueling, tiring, taxing – whatever word you want to use, four meets in seven days is a difficult run in swimming and diving. But when the Summit High girls’ squad wrapped up its strenuous stretch, the word the Tigers used to sum it up was a bit surprising.”I think it’s more fun,” sophomore Crystal Nichols said. “We’re always with the team, and it’s like a big family.””When you’re with your friends it’s always great,” added Italian exchange student Mafi Balzaw. The Tigers lost 105-79 against league rival Conifer at the SHS pool Thursday, but had a number of solid performances, including wins in three events.”I think we did amazing,” Nichols said. “Conifer is a hard team to beat, and we did great. Everyone was tired, but we pulled through until the end.”Nichols won the 100-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:33.92 and helped the 200-yard medley relay team to a 7-second win. Dani Lagevin, who had Summit’s other individual win (100-yard backstroke), was also on the team, along with seniors Katie Lowe and Katy Andrews.The Tigers also had an impressive showing in diving, as senior Gabi Ketzenbarger was second and junior Rachel Lawlis finished in third.The Tigers now have a long layoff before competing again on Jan. 6.
