On a day when most spring sports in the area became casualties of the chilly fickleness of Mother Nature in April, swimming kept its dependable spot in climate-controlled comfort. Even so, one swimmer recalled a much colder scene.
“I’m glad I have an indoor sport, but I have done a polar bear plunge a couple of times,”
For Eric Moore, the end result Wednesday on the scoreboard at the Fountain-Fort Carson pool is hopefully just the beginning.
The senior diver posted a state-qualifying score at the Trojans’ double-dual against Harrison and Wasson. Not only that, his total of 195 points continued to approach the school record of longtime friend Keit
It started as a simple question, then an ambitious idea to restore a bit of the past at Widefield.
Why doesn’t our school offer boys’ swimming as a varsity sport?
