Greene County Rams

Greene County High School senior Julia Saul takes to the Marshalltown YMCA pool tomorrow for the Iowa Girls State Swimming & Diving Championships. Saul swims for Boone under an athletic sharing agreement. She qualified as part of the Toreadors’ 400 freestyle relay team at the Nov. 2 Ft. Dodge District. Boone is the 30th fastest qualifier in that event among 32 qualifying quartets.

Saul told Raccoon Valley Radio she was very excited to have qualified for State. “This is my first time making it to State and that was one of my goals when the season started, so I’m very excited.” As far as goals for the relay, she added, “We just want to continue to better our time. My goal was to swim my 100 leg under one minute, which I did, so now I want to swim even faster.”

The Toreadors under the direction of head coach Chris Mann, qualified two divers and two individual events, plus three relays for State competition.
