The Laramie High girls swimming and diving team re-wrote the record books Saturday at the Jackson Invitational.

The Lady Plainsmen broke five pool records in the meet that had a format like that of postseason meets with preliminary heats on Friday and the finals on Saturday.

The LHS girls won 10 of 12 events to dominate the meet with five other area teams from that part of the state.

Olivia McPherson broke the pool record in the 50-yard freestyle and 100 breaststroke and Sage Morton broke the record in the 500 freestyle. The Lady Plainsmen also broke records in the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay.

LHS also added its 16th state qualifier when Jordan Johnson qualified in diving with a fifth place finish of 278.25 points (270 needed).


The LHS cross-country teams placed three runners in the top 10 Friday at the John Martin Invitational in Fort Collins, Colorado.

It was the third large meet south of the border in as many weeks for the Plainsmen and Lady Plainsmen.

Lady Plainsmen Abigail Whitman and Libby Berryhill ran together to place fifth and sixth, respectively. Mason Swingholm led the Plainsmen with a sixth-place finish.


The Lady Plainsmen (5-10 overall, 0-2) began Southeast Quadrant play with matches at Cheyenne East on Thursday and against Cheyenne Central at home of Friday.

The Lady Plainsmen lost to East 3-0 and Central 3-1.
