Arapahoe junior Franny Cable made a big splash at the Class 5A Swimming Championships on Feb. 10 at the Eldora Pool Ice Center in Fort Collins.
She won the divining title, which helped the Warriors finish fourth in the team standings behind state champion Fossil Ridge, Fairview and Regis Jesuit.
Cable, a runner-up last season, finished ahead of Douglas County/Castle View senior Sam Tamborski, who is headed to the University of Iowa to dive next season. Cable had 531.45 points compared to 499.10 for Tamborski.
“(Cable) was determined to win,” Arapahoe dive coach Jeff Smith said. “She is a competitor and when she gets focused you better watch out.”
Arapahoe diver Kristen Belitz was the sixth-place diver.
Senior Delaney Smith was the other standout for the Warriors. She was second in the 200 IM, fourth in the 100 breaststroke and swam on two relay teams in the finals. Gabreece VanAnne was seventh in the 50 freestyle.
Rock Canyon finished sixth in the 5A team standings, Cherry Creek eighth, Mountain Vista ninth and Douglas County/Castle View 10th.
Mountain Vista's Natalie Arky was the runner-up in the 100 butterfly and swam the first leg on the Golden Eagles' 200 medley relay team, which was second and also was on the seventh-place 400 freestyle relay team. Holley Dennis was sixth in the 100 breaststroke and swam on both relay teams.
Rock Canyon was led by Britt Nichols, who was fifth in the 500 freestyle and Jessica Beckwith, who finished seventh in the 100 butterfly. The Jaguars' 200 medley relay team was sixth.
