The Verde Valley High Performance swimmers returned from a winter holiday hiatus with a strong showing at the 14th annual Phil Levine Invitational, held at Moon Valley Country Club across four days and two weekends, ending on Jan. 28.
Twelve-year-old Carlos Lattanzi, who at the end of 2017 held six No. 1 times in Arizona in his age group, added two more to that list, on top of taking first in all 10 events he swam at the
meet. Meanwhile, 12-yearold Renae Porteous and 11-year-old Sarina McCullough turned in top three swims, and some new members of the team made their debut.
