STATE SWIMMING ON DECK

Area squads will begin state swimming competition on Friday and Saturday, with the Class 5A meet taking place at Edora Pool and Ice Center in Fort Collins and the 4A championships being held at Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center in Thornton.

The schedules for both meets art the same.

Swimming preliminary heats begin at 4 p.m. Friday. Diving prelims are at 9 a.m. Saturday. And finals for all events begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.

With Olympian Missy Franklin competing for Regis, tickets are scarce, though both meets will be streamed live online at chsaa.tv.
