    With a slight increase in numbers over last year, the Imperial Swim Team is preparing for its first meet Saturday. About 40 youngsters will compete in Bird City, Kan., up from about 36 youthlast year.
    Practices started May 27 under the direction of Head Coach Michelle Wilson and Assistant Coach Levi Wooden.
    An exciting aspect of having a new swimming pool is that the qualifying meet for the Plains Tsunami Swim League, of which Imperial is a member, will be held in Imperial July 11. A total of 25 teams are expected to compete.
    The Swim Team’s schedule is as follows:
  • June 6—Bird City, Kan.
  • June 13—Imperial
  • June 20—Grant
  • June 27—Wauneta
  • July 4—to be determined
  • July 11—Qualifying meet in Imperial
  • July 17—Championship meet in Lexington
    Lifeguards for the summer are Wooden, Jordon German, Erica Pirog, Jacob Pankonin, Breanna Krutsinger, April Bernard, Shanna Carter, Joel Fisher, Grant Lenners, Daniel Morales and Jacob Burke. Three more guards were to have been certified this week, Wooden said.
