Truckee Tahoe Swim Team members Tess Lannoy, Leslie Ajari and Wes Ajari competed in the Far Western Long Course Championship Swim Meet in Concord last week, bringing home varying results.

Nearly 1,400 swimmers from the West, Mexico and Canada traveled to the event for which they must qualify.

Lannoy qualified in the 100- and 200-meter backstroke, Wes Ajari in the 100 and 200 breaststroke and Leslie Ajari in the 50 and 100 butterfly, 50 and 100 backstroke, 50 and 100 breaststroke, the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle and the 200 individual medley.

Lannoy swam the 100 backstroke in 1:17.10 and the 200 backstroke in 2:46.17 for a 25th-place finish.

Wes Ajari swam the 100 breaststroke in 1:15.35 to nearly make the finals as the first alternate, finishing ninth overall. In the 200 breaststroke, he swam a 2:45.12 for 12th place.

Leslie Ajari became the first Torpedo swimmer to win her age group (10 and under) at Far Westerns. She finished first in the 100 (1:09.33) and 200 (2:29.87) freestyle events, 50 (36.24) and 100 (1:18.63) backstrokes, 200 (2:45.00) IM; second in the 50 (31.78) freestyle and third in the 50 (33.52) and 100 (1:15.68) butterfly and the 100 breaststroke (1:19.22).

Leslie was disqualified in the 50 breaststroke, but still managed to score 70 points to outdistance the second-place finisher from Irvine Nova Aquatics Team from Southern California and the third-place finisher from Tempe, Ariz.
