Carson swim falls to Galena
Carson High turned in many outstanding efforts in boys and girls swimming, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the depth of Galena on Friday in a dual meet at Fallon.
Galena clinched the girls meet, leading 154-131. Diving was scheduled for today, but was postponed because Fallon’s pool was unable to hold the diving. The diving may be rescheduled for Monday.
Carson has three divers — Charity Ricks, Ila Bottoms and Alyssa Jensen — but they would not be able to score enough points to make up the deficit.
Galena also took a 144-128 lead in the boys meet. Carson has two divers — Travis Hall and Brent Server — but they also would not be able to score enough points to make up the deficit.
