The Starkville High School swim team did not perform as well at the Class 6A North State meet as it wanted.
In a sport of a second chance, the Yellowjackets seek to have a better outing at today's Class 6A State meet in Cleveland. The prelims begin at 9 a.m. on the campus of Delta State University.
"We had some good swims at North State, but our relays did not place quite as high as I was expecting," SHS swim coach Angela Hobart said. "We didn't have any winning relays. We had a couple of seconds and a couple of thirds.
"Mainly, the girls 200 freestyle relay that won last year had a good swim and all had good splits, but still came in third. Madison Central out-touched us with a 146-flat and we had a 146-6. My girls from last year are the record holders at the State meet so we're looking to defend that title. I'm hoping after a week of preparing they are going to move back up there."
