The Porterville Hurricanes defeated the Porterville Neptunites 551-506 in Tuesday’s swim meet at Granite Hills High School. 

In girls scores, the Neptunites won 276-250 while the Hurricanes boys won 301-230. 

“The weather was pleasant and the swimming was kicked off with the parent relay which was well attended by parents and former swimmers, running nine relays strong,” Hurricanes president, Lance Hyder, said. 

Hyder also noted that the new lane lines provided by Porterville Unified School District were working great at the meet.

Both the Porterville teams are preparing for the Time Trials, Saturday, July 13, at Granite Hills. The meet is hosted by the Neptunites and starts at 9 a.m. Seven teams are competing and Porterville is expecting a couple thousand people to attend.

“Our coaches and swimmers have been working hard and hopefully our swimmers best times will be reached here at the end of the season,” Hyder said.

The Time Trials meet is the qualifying meet for finals which will happen Saturday, July 20, at Sierra High School in Tollhouse, which is below Shaver Lake.
