Five TNT swimmers represented our program at the Senior Zone meet held in Clovis over the August 2nd weekend, and Selma’s Aubrey Holbert, along with Preston Niayesh, both earned second swims in their respective events. Preston earned his final swim in the 100 meter breaststroke event after swimming a time of 1:10.49 in the preliminary heats to earn a 5th place spot in the C-final. Preston finished sixth in the heat, placing 22nd overall in the event after improving his preliminary swim to a 1:10.05.

Two swimmers improved one time each, and both improved events were the 100 meter backstroke. Selma’s Aubrey Holbert swam a lifetime best of 1:10.10 to finish 27th overall during the preliminary heats of the event, fast enough to scratch into the C-final where she finished 24th overall. Fourteen year old Alex Roberts was our youngest contender at age fourteen, and she improved her 100 meter backstroke over a second to a 1:11.30, and finishing 57th in the event.

Visalia’s Lauren Geiger finished 88th as her highest place, and this was in the 100 meter backstroke (1:12.86), while Micah Ruiz’s highest finish was 173rd in the 50 meter freestyle (27.32) event.
