The Big Spring swimming team may have something to prove at todayâ€™s District 4-4A meet.
In a district with powerhouses such as Monahans and Pecos, the Steers are looking to make a name for themselves today at the Jerry Larned Sports Complex in Monahans.
â€śFor a lot of them, this is their first year,â€ť BSHS swimming coach Mackenzie Miles said. â€śThey want to make a name for themselves. Whatâ€™s most important to me is that the one who donâ€™t get to move on to regionals, that theyâ€™re able to be most successful at this meet and get their best times.â€ť
