Although the Knights swam well, Havasu did outnumber the other three teams. In all there with 36 Knights that made the trip to Kingman. Combined, the other three teams put 32 swimmers in the pool.

Despite the small competition, Dickinson said the meet was a good warm-up for the big state qualifier coming up this Saturday in the Crim Swim at 11 a.m. in Yuma.

With provisional state qualifiers in the 200 medley, 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle relay teams, the Knights competing in those relays will look to better their times to solidify a spot at the state tournament.
