Local aquatic athletes continue to show their skills while hosting the annual swim meet at the city pool over the weekend.

More than a hundred kids and their parents gathered on Saturday to participate in the meet held at West City Park in Mineral Wells which was organized by the Mineral Wells Moccasins.

The event began with a display of participants swimming the length of the pool holding small American flags while a young lady sang the national anthem.

According to event organizers, the swim meet has been held every year since 1999 when the pool opened, but truly has been taking place much longer.

“I’m not sure the first year it started but I know when I was in school we hosted the meet out at the Base Pool,” said Wendy Boswell, who has been involved in the aquatics program in Mineral Wells for over 30 years.

The local swim team known as the Moccasins had a great meet with several swimmers taking home the top spot.
