Area swimmers place high at state meet
SULPHUR — Local high school swimmers performed well and brought home plenty of hardware from the Louisiana State High School Swimming Championships last weekend.
The Ruston High boys’ team finished sixth and the girls were ninth of the more than 20 teams competing from around the state.
Cedar Creek finished in a tie for third among the 21 schools competing in that division.
The state championships consist of heats of preliminary events with the Top 8 swimmers in each event competing in the finals and the second eight finishers competing in the consolation finals.
