The Mingus Marauder swim team has been putting in the work and is now starting to see the results as their focus begins to shift to the state swim meet, now less than a month away.

Sean Williams competes in the 100 yard butterfly event during a swim meet on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Cottonwood Recreation Center outdoor pool.Only four meets remain for the team’s swimmers to get their state-qualifying times, so the time is now to be in the best condition they can be.

“They’re working really hard,” said Marauders head coach Brendon Kenney said. “We’re still preparing for our Fall Fire on [Oct. 12], so I’m still pushing them really hard because it’s a home meet and it should be fun for them.

“I just want them to be well- prepared for that.”

The Fall Fire is a state-qualifying meet, meaning that it is one of the few meets during the season in which swimmers can qualify for the state swim meet if they meet or exceed state-qualifying or provisional state-qualifying times.

Several Mingus swimmers looked “state meet-ready” in a quadrangular swim meet on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Cottonwood Recreation Center’s outdoor pool.

Both the Marauders’ girls and boys teams took first place in the meet over the Flagstaff, Fredonia and Sedona Red Rock high school swim teams.

The final girls team scores showed Mingus with 160 points, Sedona Red Rock with 155 points, Flagstaff with 144 points and Fredonia with 14 points.

In the boys team competition, Mingus had 155 points, Flagstaff had 128 points, Sedona Red Rock had 124 points and Fredonia had 75 points.

“It was nice to see the results in that meet,” Kenney said. “I know Flag[staff] moved some kids around and had them swim some different things on the girls side, so they’re tweaking some things.
“Obviously, we don’t want to be peaking now, so we’re pushing them as much as we can, but it was a good meet, good team meet overall — boys and girls.

“Individually we had some pretty good swims, relays we swam well enough for scoring purposes. We still want to push forward on our relays, try to keep dropping time there.”
