Girls Swim Team Participates in Nevada Swim Meet

The Harrisonville girls swim team has been working hard this year to win competitions. On Jan. 24,2017, the HHS swim team went against Carthage, Monet and Nevada at Nevada High School at 4:30 pm.

Sophomore Haley Holden said that the team did very well under the circumstances; they were missing six girls from the team.

She was also pleased with her own performance.

“I was competing against senior swimmers and was able to keep up with them,” she said.

Holden said her strategy to win was “pace myself and keep ahead of the people either sides of me.”

The swim team’s next meet is this evening in Warrensburg.
