The Basin swimmers are in North Bend Friday and Saturday for the District meet, vying for an opportunity to swim at next weekend’s OSAA State Championships in Gresham.

Klamath Union coach Uwe Britsch says the entire season is designed to have his swimmers at their optimal level at this meet so they get a chance to swim at state.

Dan Zimmer is the longtime coach at Henley. His girls brought home a state title last season and Zimmer says filling in the Districts entry sheet is the one of the toughest all year.
