Carson boys swimming rolls past Fallon
Even though it was short-handed, the Carson High boys swim team still rolled to a 152-98 win over Fallon on Saturday at the Carson Aquatic Facility.
With only seven swimmers, the CHS girls team fell to Fallon 150-89. Both Carson’s boys and girls teams had many swimmers unable to compete for various reasons.
Among the reasons is this weekend’s regional Junior Olympics in San Ramon, Calif., in which four Carson swimmers are competing. Kevin Dyer is swimming in the boys meet while Danielle Judge, Julie Asire and Tatum Boehnke are competing in the girls meet.
