The Methow Valley Killer Whales swim team held time trials last Friday (June 14) on the fifth day of the group’s season-opening Boot Camp.

Coach Jeanne Thornton-White has returned for her second season as head coach as the pods prepare for their first competition at the Okanogan Dual Meet on Thursday (June 20) followed by the Apple Invitational in Omak two days later.

With a roster of swimmers 116 strong, the Killer Whales team will be defending their county title and competing for their eighth consecutive championship trophy.
