This week, two athletes from the swim and dive team will be competing at Valley Championships. Kaleb Hillan is competing at the Valley Diving Championships on Thursday, May 2, 2019. The following day, May 3, 2019, Presley Golling will be competing at the Valley Swimming Championships. Both events will be held at the Clovis West High School Olympic Swim Complex.

Congratulations are well-deserved to the TUHS swim team for their achievements. Look for updates of our two swim and dive athletes after the Swim and Dive Valley Championships.
