Volcanoes swim well at Plumas Rapids Open

The Lassen Volcanoes swim team traveled to Quincy from July 21 to July 22 for the Plumas Rapids Open.

Head coach Camille Buehler was pleased with the team as they placed third overall.

Several swimmers for the Lassen Volcanoes achieved B times.

Achieving a B time is the first step into moving up the rung of age group standards and qualifying for faster meets.

Age group standards are set by U.S. Swimming and are designed to help swimmers know how they compare to other swimmers in their age group. Time standards are different for each age, and start at B times for the lowest levels. From there they get faster with BB, A, AA, AAA and AAAA.
