The SHS Girls dominated at a dual meet agains PORTA yesterday in Petersburg.  There were some excellent instances of swimming outside the comfort zone. Sophomore Cora Franklin swam the 200 IM for the first time in at least two years and was close to a best time, and Sophomore Mia Moreno volunteered for the 500 free and held the same pace the entire race!  Junior Alexandra Bradley had a season best in the 100 breaststroke, and Arya Sreedhar swam best times in the 50 and 100 frees. And Sophomore divers Linden Neposchlan and Falyn Long upped their degree of difficulties, and look amazing in their dive execution!

And now the Pledge of Allegiance!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
