|HSC competes in Burlington meet|
|Written by Jes-c Brandt|
Holyoke swimmers placed sixth overall in the second meet of the summer. The Saturday, June 6 competition in Burlington began a bit overcast, but cleared up for a great meet. Swim Club Coach Adria Colver commended the team on an outstanding meet.
Colver went on to say she was pleased with the individual accomplishments she saw throughout the day, especially in the individual medleys.
On a sad note, the swim meet was the last of the summer for two Holyoke competitors. Amy Krogmeier and Briar Bergner finished their season Saturday, leaving the older end of the swimming spectrum rather sparse for the Holyoke Swim Club.
Fortunately, said Colver, Pamela and LeAnne McWilliams will continue in the 15-18 age division this year. With the exit of some swimmers, Colver noted she is excited to start working with some of the younger kids who have had a very promising season so far.
Team standings at the end of the day were Colby winning the meet with 268 points. Goodland followed with 198 points, Oberlin 180, Wray 175, Burlington 145, Holyoke 127, Flagler 55 and Oakley 33.
This week the club will travel to Goodland, Kan. for their Saturday, June 13 meet.
