Holyoke Swim Club ended the day third in the team standings. Goodland, Kan., secured first with 285.5 points, followed by Colby, Kan., 199, Holyoke 195.5, Wray 177, Oberlin, Kan., 150, Burlington 136, Flagler 42.5 and Oakley, Kan., 26.5.

The coaches were very positive after the meet. Coach Adria Colver was very pleased with the team’s overall performance, noting improvements in the simmers’ turns and starts, as well as some wonderful time drops.

Colver said the 11-12-year-old swimmers placed well, despite often being the youngest in their age group.

Coach Brenda Krueger commented on the promising season ahead, particularly with the 15-18 200 yd. medley relay team. The young team of 14-and 15-year-olds cut 3 seconds off their previous relay time.

The NWKSL will continue their season with a meet in Wray on Saturday, June 8.
