Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

With 33 team members, Holyoke swim team scored 200 points for 3rd place at the Wray meet Saturday, June 9.

Goodland took 48 swimmers and placed 1st with 302.5 points, followed by Wray, 50 swimmers, 221; Holyoke, 33, 200; Burlington, 47, 183.5; Colby, 43, 183; Oberlin, 27, 32; and Flagler, 10, 32.

Coach Adria Colver said she saw “very nice performance from everyone” at Saturday’s meet.

She said she asked the 9-10 and older kids to focus on stronger, longer dives, and she saw considerable improvement.

8 and under coach Brenda Krueger said the youngest age group improved their times again at Wray. She added she’s very proud of the new swimmers who are competing. This was their first meet away from home, and they still bettered their times.

It was an extremely hot day, but swimmers still worked hard and cut time.
