UW men's swim team shoots for conference championship

Laramie, Wyo. – The University of Wyoming men's swim team has a chance to win the conference championship this year.

That's something that they haven't done since 1959. The cowboys are undefeated so far this season with ten wins behind them, and they are counting on that strength lasting until the end of the season.

Team captain Eli Bell is a senior this year. He says the conference championship would mean a lot.

"It would be incredible," he said. "Everyone here is fighting for it. It's our goal."

The team has its next test Saturday at 11.

They will swim in Laramie against the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The Conference Championship meet is at the end of February.
