As just three of about 1,600 swimmers at the Far Western Championships April 7, Jessica Tinlin, Charlie Odin and Lauren Falls knew they had their work cut out for them.

Although none of them made the finals in Walnut Creek, Calif., event, they all had good showings.

Falls won her heat in the 50-yard breaststroke and looked impressive throughout the day.

“Just making it there with being as young as she is means that she has a great chance of making it back,” Tahoe Swim team coach Dale Bogard said.

Tinlin, in her final year of swimming for the team, also had a strong showing.

“It was good for her to finish her career by making it to Far Westerns,” Bogard said.

Odin had the most success of the trio by setting a new team record in the 100 butterfly. His time of 1 minute, 7.45 seconds broke his team record. Odin finished in 19th place but didn’t make the finals.

“It was really neat to see Charlie break his own mark,” Bogard said. “I know he has the potential to make it back again.”

The city of South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation Department is accepting team sign-ups for the 2001 Men’s & Coed softball leagues through April 28, unless the division is filled.

League play begins the week of May 7 and runs through August. League registration is $470 for the season and includes a minimum of 14 games for each team.
