Five weeks into the 2001 season, Truckee’s varsity girls are undefeated in their five meets and lead the Sierra Division over second-place Incline by a hefty margin. Last Friday’s meet against Lowry was another Wolverine domination, as the phenomenons took first place in all 11 events, beating the Buckaroos 111-59.

Freshman Kate Rose took 12 seconds off her time in the 200 IM – a performance that qualified her for zone trials in May. Also qualifying for zones on Friday in the 200 IM were senior Jasmine Eisenberg and freshman Haley Long.

The boys’ team lost to Lowry 30 to 114 on Friday, but swam well individually, as Aaron Browning took second place in both of his events earning a best time in the 100 m breaststroke with a time of 1:24.72.

Nikolai Travis also earned a PR time in the 100 freestyle with a 53:47 finish. Truckee boys are currently sitting in sixth place in division rankings, ahead of the last place Highlanders.
