The Greater Nebraska Swim Team of North Platte had an excellent swim meet on June 23. The weather was beautiful, and only mid-eighties, as opposed to the predicted 100 plus degrees. We had 113 athletes come and participate from across Western and Central Nebraska. We would like to thank our coaches Archie and Heather Heffernan, and assistant coaches Andrew Van Velson and Zach Burns. Our great day of swim competition would not have been possible without so many contributors.

Engineering, Huebners Nursery, Lawn and Garden Center, States Dental Clinic, Fellows Home Appliance, and Pathology Services. These businesses donated food or gave discounts: Perkins Restaurant, Subway, Union Pacific Railroad, Cash-Wa, Gary's Super Foods, Sun-Mart, Sara Lee Bread Store, Eakes Office Plus. We also had heat awards generously donated by the following: Gracie Mae's, Burger King, Godfather's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Taco Johns, Starbucks, Runza, McDonald's, Cold Stone and Quiznos. A big thanks also goes to Cody Pool and the lifeguards who worked the day of our meet. Thank you to the North Platte Telegraph for excellent coverage of our swim meet and for promoting the sport of swimming.
