The Glasgow Kiwanis Thunder prepare for the parade of athletes at the divisional meet held in Malta July 23 and 24. The Thunder will be represented by 28 swimmers at the state meet in Hamilton July 30 and 31.

The Glasgow Kiwanis Swim Team finished their eighth weekend of competition July 23 and 24 in Malta, where the divisional swim meet was held.

With 370 swimmers from ten veteran teams, the competition was tough. Swimmers must place in the top 12 of their events just to qualify for state competition. That's not an easy task, and not all swimmers make it past divisionals.

The Thunder was represented by just more than half of their rostered team, with 32 swimmers competing at the two-day meet. Of those 32 athletes, 28 swimmers qualified to compete at the state meet this weekend in Hamilton, where the East will meet the West in four separate divisions July 30 and 31.

Glasgow finished just two-and-a-half points behind Malta, which knocked the Thunder into the "B" division for state. In that division, Glasgow will be swimming against the best swimmers from Shelby, Plentywood, Fort Benton, Harlem, and Chester.
