Miller, Begay crowned state champions

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.
