Three members of the Denton Dolphins have qualified to represent Denton at the 2015 State Games of America in Lincoln, Neb.

Eight members of the Dolphins team competed recently at the TAAF Summer Games of Texas in College Station, with Joseph Morales and Maddie McAlister earning berths in the national meet. Hannah Hickman qualified for nationals with a third-place finish in the 50-yard butterfly in the 11- and 12-year-old division at an earlier TAAF event.

McAlister, in the 8-and-under girls division, qualified after placing third in the 25 butterfly. Morales, in 8-and-under boys, will compete in the 50 freestyle after placing third and in the 25 backstroke after a second-place finish.
