Two Tooele County high school swimmers finished off their senior seasons in style on Saturday in Bountiful, combining to win three individual state championships.
Tooele senior Myra Miller overcame near-disaster to win the first state title of her career, squeaking out a narrow victory in the Class 4A girls’ 200-yard individual medley after nearly missing the event entirely because of a miscommunication during the previous day’s preliminary heats. She later added a second-place finish in the 100 breaststroke.
Grantsville senior Hadlee Begay capped a stellar career, winning the Class 3A girls’ 500 freestyle for the fourth year in a row. She also captured her third 100 butterfly title after winning the 200 free state title as a junior, giving her eight career individual state titles.
