Last Saturday, the Laker swim team traveled to Elizabethtown to compete in the Hardin County Invitational.
Coach Ginny Lengel sent the following message to the team: “Great job Lakers in a tough meet.”
“Congratulations to our boys who took home a 3rd place trophy out of 8 teams. Considering how many more swimmers the other teams have, 3rd place is an amazing accomplishment. Our girls came in 7th out of 10 teams,” she said.
This meet, as well as the meet this coming weekend in Shelbyville, are important in planning strategy for Regionals Feb. 6th and 7th.
Swimmers are limited to the number of events they may enter and choosing the right events for each individual swimmer plus relays is difficult.
The top two swimmers in each event at regionals will go on to compete in the state tournament. Each of us should be proud of the Russell County Swim Team; these athletes have done an exceptional job thus far this season.
