Payson Swim Team To Host Cottonwood


Rim country splash action will be fast and furious tomorrow (Saturday) at Taylor Pool, when the town of Payson youth swim team hosts Cottonwood in a dual meet, at 8 a.m.

Youngsters, ages 6 to 18 years old, will compete throughout the morning in age/sex groups. Competition will be held in the four basic strokes butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle as well as relays.

With more than 80 members on its roster, coaches expect the Payson team to show well.

Throughout the summer, the young swimmers under the tutelage of first-year coach Gloria Olsson have practiced each weekday morning in hour-long sessions.

Olsson's assistants are Shea Hatch, Malori Heppler and R.C. LaHaye. Volunteer assistants include Judy Hunt and Kristi Ford.

Spectators are welcome at tomorrow's meet and there is no admission charge.

The summer swim season wraps up July 27 when Kingman visits Taylor Pool.
