Normally in the world of swimming, a rest period in between meets is about a week.
However, the Duncan high swim team isn’t working on a normal schedule to start the 2012-13 season.
Today (4:30 p.m.) will see the Demons and Lady Demons back in action for their second meet of the season, which will take place at the Chickasha Acquatic Center, on the campus of Chickasha High School.
Besides DHS and the host Fightin’ Chicks, three Edmond schools will also be participating in today’s events.
“Don’t ask me about having two meets so close together, I didn’t make the schedule,” Duncan coach Andrew Bowers jokingly said about the meet. “Having two separate meets so close together like this will show us what we’re working with. Our conditioning is going to be tested, so it will give us a chance to see how good of shape these kids are in.”
Among the participants to watch for will be freshman Charles Espinola, who made an immediate impact in his first competitive high school meet.
During Espinola’s first event, the 200 meter individual medley, he showcased his much talked about speed, which earned him a state qualifying time of 2:33.36.
He also managed to qualify in another solo event, along with being apart of multiple relay teams.
Marlow High School will also be represented as Lady Outlaw swimmer Brittany Boles will look to improve on her strong showing last Thursday at the Simmons Center.
“You definitely want to see improvement in every meet,” Bowers said. “We showed in our first meet that we’re a strong team. Several of our swimmers shaved off time from their original qualifying times for state. Improving is something we always strive to do when we get in the water.”
