More than 260 young swimmers hit the pool for an amazing day of confident competition at the annual Prescott Plunge, hosted by the Prescott Swim Team.

Over Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, this two-day event drew swimmers from around the state. Five local swimmers took home medals for their stellar performances.

10-year-old Heath Tinsley came in first overall in the 50-meter freestyle, while 17-year-old Renee Baillie took second place overall in the 200 backstroke. Josh Baillie, 15, finished in second place overall in the 100 breaststroke and Jayden Long, 12, placed third in the 500 freestyle. 10-year-old Elin Mischler enjoyed a third-place finish in the 50 backstroke.

These girls and boys work together to respect and support one another in their swimming endeavors. For more information, please visit the official website of the Prescott Swim Team.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
