Congratulations to all of our area games swimmers. We had 44 swimmers representing the Man O War swim team and they represented well. As fast as our record board is getting, there was still room for more records. The record breaking started with the men’s 200m medley relay with a time of 2:45.2 made up of Gregg Dedic, Ian Soules, Jesse Greve and William Westman the men’s team also took the gold for area games and I believe it is the fastest time ever swam for a S.O. medley relay in the state. We also had several individual record breakers, Ian Soules 50m breaststroke 47.6, Jesse Greve 50 freestyle 30.4 and Lori Thomas 50 freestyle 43.2 .
