The boys fell to both Kelley, 71-58 and to Bartlesville, 111-30 in their first competition since the Christmas break.

Nazari had state cuts in the 100-yard butterfly (1:05.6) and the 100 back (1:05).

Hunter McEachern won the girls’ 50 free (26.11) and 100 breast (1:15.8). Whitney Livesay took the girls 200 free in 2:22.4

Nazari, McEachern, Livesay and Ashley Valdez were second in the 200 free relay (1:5.12).

“We needed to swim today,’’ said Enid coach Ginny Shipley. “Some of the kids weren’t real happy with their times, but this was the first time we swam in a month.’’

Our times should be going down Tuesday (at Putnam City Invitational).’’
