Sopris Barracuda Charlie Mechling was recently named a Colorado Swimming All-Star. The youngster, who competes in the girls 11-and-12 division, is the only Western Slope swimmer to make the list.

By virtue of the honor, Mechling will swim with the Colorado team in Lawrence, Kan., over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Ten swimmers in each age group qualify, and Mechling had to swim a top-five time in every event in the last 90 days to make it.

Mechling currently holds the top Colorado times in the 50- and 100-yard breaststroke and will definitely swim the two events in Kansas.
