Bullard High’s Erik Overstreet and Clovis West’s Skyler Elkington are among the marquee competitors entered in the Clovis West Invitational swimming and diving meet, which will draw roughly 1,450 competitors from around the state to the Golden Eagles’ newly renovated aquatics complex Friday and Saturday.
Overstreet is the favorite in the 200 free and 500 frees, where his seed times of 1:40.19 and 4:32.37 are All-American considerations.
Elkington is the favorite in the 100 free, where her seed time of 51.89 is close to All-American consideration, and is also set to battle in the 50 free against Hanford West’s Dagmar Gudmundsson, the defending Central Section Division II champion.
