EHS swimmers head to Bartlesville

ENID, Okla. — Sara Nazari will be coming off  the injured list when the Enid swimmers go to the Bartlesville Invitational today.

It will be the Pacers’ and Plainsmen’s first meet since Dec. 17.

Nazari, who was the state runner-up in the 200 IM and 500 free last season, will be swimming the 100-yard back, the 100-yard butterfly and a leg on the 200-yard freestyle.

“I don’t know if she’s 100 percent yet,’’ said EHS coach Ginny Shipley of Nazari, who has been slowed by a back injury. “We’ll see how she is after she swims.’’

Shipley said she will be cautious with Nazari with the state meet being five weeks away.

“We don’t want to do anything that might jeopardize our state performance,’’ Shipley said. “We have to play that by ear. Sara takes a lot of time off of our relays.’’

Alyssa Shearer will be back in action after missing several meets with a stress fracture in her leg. She will be swimming the 100 back and will be on two relays.

“We’re completely healthy,’’ Shipley said.

The swimmers had a good attendance on voluntary workouts during the Christmas break, Shipley said. They returned to school on Monday.

“We’re ready to swim,’’ Shipley said. “We like swimming at Bartlesville because it’s a very nice facility and they put on a nice meet. We just need to swim.’’

Several swimmers, notably Michael Johnson (100 free), Jeremy Crise (100 breaststroke), Ashley Valdez (100 free) and Christy McMeans (50 free) are close to state cuts.

“When you are about a second away, it’s more mental than anything else,’’ Shipley said.

The EHS swimmers will go to the Putnam City Invitational Tuesday and will go to Midwest City for a dual with the Mid-Del schools Jan. 25.

Shipley has added a last chance meet at Jenks on Feb. 1-2 and a home dual with Piedmont Feb. 8. The state meet is Feb. 15-16.

     With a fifth Brickyard 400 victory on the line Sunday, Jeff Gordon looked like the driver he was 20 years ago.
