The Bull Sharks scored a combined total of 2,472.50 points to capture the championship title over the Dixie Trailblazers who scored a total 2,0889 securing them the second-place finish. The Mesquite Manta Rays scored 964.50 points putting them in third place and the Hurricane Tiger Sharks finished in fourth place with 685 points.


Kanab City Rec would like to thank Eva Raddatz for dedicating her summer to our swim team program. With close to 120 swimmers on the team, it’s quite the task to take on coaching, and Raddatz does an amazing job. “It’s awesome to watch the swimmers from the beginning of the season to the end and see the progress that each of them makes,” said Rec Director Danielle Ramsay. “They should all be very proud of what they accomplished this year and for being back-to-back champions!”


The Kanab Bull Sharks will celebrate their championship season next week with none other than a pool party!
