Rampart fired the opening salvo of the weekend. The Rams 200 meter medley relay broke the state record, previously held by Cheyenne Mountain. Freshman Lindsey Immel hopes her team can battle for a state title on Saturday, "Obviously we want to win because that's super cool if we could win state, but just if we go out and have fun and work as a team," says Immel.
The Rams will have to hold off Cheyenne Mountain and senior phenom Cat Wright who's hunting records, "I think a state record or two. Just going out there and having fun knowing it's my last run that'll be special enough as it is," says Cat Wright.
(After 4A finished it was time for 3A finals and Pueblo County stormed out the gate with a win in the 200 medley relay, "I'm so stinking proud of my teammates. I love each and every one of them. They each did their part and we were all awesome," says Amanda Blickensderfer, "I just mentally turned everything off and let my body take over. I was just thinking I gotta win this because I want to be a state champion," added Alexa Musson of Pueblo County.
Cait Cairns of St. Mary's won the 50 yard freestyle with a blazing 24.19 and Sydney Rolloff-Holt of Manitou Springs finished second in the 200 yard individual medley,"Probably the most common one that people tend to throw up afterwards but, yea I'm just glad I dropped time and the girl that I was racing is a really good competitor so I'm really pleased with that race," Sydney Rolloff-Holt.
