Sunday, 1/17 the Chieftain swimmers traveled to Springfield YMCA for a 5 team meet hosted by Springfield High School. Being our second consecutive day of competition the swimmers were focusing on details as a way to push themselves through the meet and those details really paid off. The girls narrowly took the win just 2 points ahead of Kettering Fairmont. Throughout the meet we saw many season best times including a 7 second season best 500 for Sarah Starkey, 9.5 second season best 500 for Vivian Eader, and 6.5 second best 200 Free for Sarah Fulmer.

Even though our swimmers aren’t often able to be on deck to support each other this season, they are finding new ways to bring each other up. I am extremely proud of the way this team competes and the character they show daily. We are heading in the right direction and will continue to work hard as we prepare to enter championship season in a few short weeks. The team competes next on Saturday, 1/23 at the Dayton Raider Aquatic Center.
