The Swink Lion track and field team took five members to the Colorado High School Activities Association State Track and Field Meet in Lakewood at Jeffco Stadium over the weekend.

They kicked the meet off on Thursday May 19, 2022 with a good showing in the girls 800 meter sprint medley relay, and the girls 400 meter dash.

With the late spring snow storm that hit parts of Colorado on Friday none of the scheduled events for the day took place as the field was too wet and events were postponed.

Swink students took the opportunity to go to the Denver Aquarium. 

Competition picked back up on Saturday, May 21, 2022.  With snow still on the field, Swink Lion Ben Miner competed in the boys triple jump.  His best jump of the afternoon was 33 feet 11 1/2 inches. Earning Ben 17th place at the State Track & Field Meet for 2022.
