Chilly temps and the threat of rain didn't keep Bradshaw's swimmers out of the pool this past Tuesday, but the Kingman Bulldogs probably wish it had. Bradshaw dominated the dual meet with a 114-52 victory for the Bears and a 129-33 triumph for the Lady Bears.

The host team's top swimmers included ladies' double winners Mackenzie Donovan, who was first in the 200 and the 500-yd. freestyle races; and Andie Folk, who won the 100 butterfly and 200 individual medley; along with Cameron Blinston, who took the 200 free and the 100 breaststroke for the gents.

Other top swimmers for the girls were: Emily Stolz, first in the 100 free; Rachel Campbell, first in the 100 breaststroke and 2nd in the 100 fly; and Alexis Walker, 2nd in the 200 IM.

The boys also got strong performances from: Nick McCarthy, 1st in the 100 free; Mako Bennett, 1st in the 100 back; Michael Gibbons, 2nd in the 500 free, Donny Spielman, 2nd in the 100 free; Reece Probart, 3rd in the 50 free; and Connor Serna, 3rd in the 500 free.

Bradshaw coach Patti Eller said even though lightning wasn't an issue, no one was inclined to dawdle in the cold so they finished the meet in record time.

"The kids did well, but there is a lot of room for improvement," Eller said. "It's back to the pool tomorrow."

Bradshaw played host to Mingus yesterday, after the Tribune's press time, and will have its third consecutive home meet next Tuesday, against Scottsdale Christian and Seton Catholic. Meets start at 4 p.m. at Prescott Valley's Mountain Valley Splash.
