Cynthia Shereda pushes to a strong finish Friday afternoon.

The Green River Lady Wolves swimming team took first at conference and now is preparing for state.

"The girls had a really good weekend," head coach Colleen Seiloff said.

Although there were no more state qualifiers this weekend, Seiloff was proud of what her team accomplished.

"I thought they did really well," Seiloff said. "I was very pleased with their performances. They really just stepped up and swam hard."

Over the weekend, several pool, school and conference records were broken. Seiloff wanted to focus on the conference records broken.

Lauren Jensen broke a conference record in both the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke. Jensen was also named athlete of the conference. Lauren Lee broke the conference record in the 200 freestyle.

Lauren Jensen, Jesse Lauze, Avery Otto and Ashley Jensen broke the conference record in the 200-medley relay.

During the 400-freestyle relay, swimmers L. Jensen, L. Lee, Sydni Sanders and A. Otto, broke the conference record.

"I'm just really happy with how they did," Seiloff said. "We do have a couple more people really close, so we're hoping at last chance we'll get them qualified."

The last chance meet is scheduled to take place Thursday at 4 p.m. in Green River.

Those who are going to state, but not looking to qualify in anymore events, will swim in the meet to practice. Once the last chance meet is over, the team will refocus on state.

It's really about continuing to work on those details, Seiloff said.

The Lady Wolves will have this weekend off and Seiloff hopes they take care of themselves in preparation for state.
