The Minden swimming pool was host to over 200 swimmers on July 10. The teams bringing swimmers included: Alma, Franklin, Gothenburg, Lexington, Holdrege, and our own Minden Swim Team. This meet helped determine who would be competing for the top honors at the Plains Tsunami Swim League Championships held in Lexington on July 17, 2010. To automatically qualify for an event, a swimmer must place first, second, or third in their race. After all three qualifying meets are finished, the remaining seven spots are filled with the fastest times throughout the league.
