Swimmers from Sun Valley shattered a number of meet records during the Idaho Falls Swim Team "Spook Splash 2002," meet for 168 kids from Idaho and Wyoming Oct. 25-26 in the Idaho Falls Aquatic Center.

Mollie Parker, 17, a Wood River High School senior, amassed five first-place finishes and cracked meet records in each race she won. Parker won her overall age class with the following record finishes and times:

First places for Parker—200 IM (2:20.52); 100 free (56.54); 100 breast (1:12.79); 100 butterfly (1:04.72); and 50 free (25.62).

Also setting meet records for the 14-swimmer Sun Valley 5B swim team at Idaho Falls were Michele Lowry, 15, and Amanda Harris, 15, and Katie Bryson, 16.

Lowry set girls’ 15 meet records in winning 200 IM (2:18.55), 500 free (5:32.31) and 100 back (1:02.15). Harris cracked records in winning girls' 15 races at 100 free (57.08) and 200 free (2:09.64). Harris also won the 50 freestyle event to place third overall of 11 swimmers in her class.

Katie Bryson, 16, established a meet record in winning 500 free (5:54.55). She also captured 200 free and 100 breast in girls’ 16 and ended up second overall in her class, just ahead of teammate Chloe Fuller.
