Varsity swimmers from Ada, Byng, Duncan, Harrah, Mustang, and Vanoss competed in Duncan Thursday afternoon in the Comanche Pharmacy Invitational held at the Simmons Center 25-meter pool. 

The competition was attended by 100 swimmers, and the meet resulted in 20 best times and five school records posted by the Cougars, Pirates, and Wolf.

Jacob Bowling, Justin Frazier, and the Ada girls relays broke school records, while Pirate Dalton Walker bettered a seventh OSSAA State Swimming Championships qualifying standard, this time in the 50 meter freestyle.

The teams enter a two-week period of workouts interspersed among the coming holidays and then enter back into competition the first Tuesday of 2011.
