The Lady Chiefs have been working hard as they enter the second half of the season with their sights set on another strong finish but even the hardest workouts of the season didn’t stop them from big performances Friday night. The team traveled to Urbana YMCA to participate in a small invitational comprised of Urbana and a group of schools who have a few swimmers each referred to as team champ (a branch of the Champaign Y team). The Chiefs saw some great competition throughout this meet and there were quite a few close finishes. We did not expect to see time improvements after such a tough work week but this team proved us wrong – between both the girls and boys we saw over 100 seconds of time dropped!
