By Alec Pronk in Sports

ESPN3 has decided to broadcast the 5A girls swim/dive finals online tomorrow.

The meet is receiving national attention due to the fact that Olympian Missy Franklin will be racing for Regis Jesuit. Franklin currently holds the world record for the 200 meter backstroke.

Fairview has a combined 29 individuals and three relay teams competing in the meet.  All three relay teams have top five qualifying times. In individual events Kourtney Fosse, Jessie Li, and Lacey Smith look to be contenders in their events.

One of Fairview's most talented swimmers, Abbie Houck, opted to forgo the state meet in hopes of qualifying for the Olympic team.

Tune in tomorrow at 2:00 P.M. for full coverage of the meet.
