With the temperature holding steady in the high 80s this past Wednesday in Kingman, the Bradshaw Mountain swimmers could concentrate on form and speed, rather than trying to stay warm. Those efforts paid off as both halves of the visiting team overpowered Kingman's Bulldogs. The Bears won the meet 114-48 and the Lady Bears' margin was even greater at 116-52.
Bradshaw's ladies who touched the wall first were: Rebecca Grant, 200-yard freestyle; Danielle Quan, 100 butterfly; Kirsten Van Horne, 100 free; Mikaela Paul, 100 backstroke; Hayley Ehresman, 50 free; and Katie Buckwalter, 100 breaststroke.
The girls' 200 medley relay, 200 free relay and 400 free relay teams also won their races.
Two of Bradshaw's gents scored double wins - Rio Balsiger in the 50 and 100 free, and Cameron Blinston in the 100 fly and 100 breast.
Two more Bears triumphed in races that are just about as opposite as they can be, in both style and distance. Alec Serna won the 100 back and Robert Folmer the 500 free. The Bears also won the 200 medley, the 200 freestyle and the 400 freestyle relays.
Bradshaw coach Patti Eller said other notable swimmers at the meet included Jacob Grant, Steven Causley and Rachel Campbell.
Bradshaw was to travel to Cottonwood for a meet with Mingus yesterday, after the Tribune's press time.
