SWAT team wins big in Polar Bear Plunge meet
December 14, 2023
Sweetwater Aquatics Team traveled to Pinedale on Saturday, December 9, to compete in the Polar Bear Plunge hosted by Sublette County Swim Team. For some, it was their first meet. For other veterans, it was an opportunity to "show off" all the hard work they have been putting in at practice. SWAT practices at the Green River Highschool five nights a week and these awesome athletes swim between two and six miles a night while preparing for swim meets. Part of the team practices at Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs through a competitive swim program.
At the swim meet, SWAT came away with 16 first-place finishes, 11 second-place finishes and 11 third-place finishes. Almost every athlete dropped time in multiple events. It was a great display of the hard work they have put in at practice.
