The boys swimming team has been at work since the beginning of the spring sports season. The team’s overall record is 7-1 and they are undefeated in their league. Along with these accomplishments, the team was able to once again participate in the EMAC Championships on May 10th and 11th.

Going into the championships, Boys Swim Coach Beth Himes said, “Our biggest competition is Brighton, but I am confident that we can repeat at EMAC Champions.”
