Chico, Calif. - We recently caught up with the Chico Aqua-Jets, a local swim team which train on a daily basis at In Motion Fitness, in Chico.
Eight of the team's swimmers are preparing to compete in next month's Far Western Championships in Santa Clara, California.
All of the swimmers have come in with times fast enough to qualify for the upcoming meet.
The youngest of the group is ten year old Jimmy Lauderdale. He specializes in the backstroke. And although he has never competed outside of Butte County, he says he is confident of his skills as he heads into the meet. He says he is strong and fast and sure of his abilities.
