"It builds up confidence for the kids and it's a cool run," Bell said. "It's nice to have, but it's not the most important thing you want to see.

"You just try to get your kids qualified for state. You're not worried too much about dual meets."

The Cougars - who won eight of 12 events, including all three relays - have 11 swimmers headed to the 4A state meet, Bell said.

The Trojans were led by Brenan Bloyd, who won the 100 backstroke (59.85) and 200 freestyle (1:53.73).
