Pryor Adair —
The Pryor and Adair High school swim teams competed Dec. 13, at the Jenks quadrangular swim meet against Jenks, Ft. Gibson and Bixby.
“All the kids swam pretty well,” said Head Coach Brian Smith. “But we had some swimmers who just didn't do as well as I thought they were going to do and some who really did outstanding. Among those was Dustin Samford.”
Samford swam the 200 freestyle and took second with a time of 2:13.10.
Tyler Newby took seventh in 2:18.64, and Jordan Moore took 11th in 2:42.53.

Skyler Derhammer improved by 3.1 seconds in the 500 free by swimming a 6:54.29.
“We had some kids who would have helped us last night that were unable to compete and it showed,” Smith said. “We also have had alot of the swimmers who have been sick, which affected their performance last night. But all in all it a good performance.”
The next meets are in Bartlesville Jan. 8, the Hornet Invitational at Booker T. Washington Jan 10, Pryor Quad Jan. 17 and Ft. Gibson Jan. 29.
