The SHS Girls Swimming and Diving team had 31 seasonal best times yesterday in a dual meet against SHG, particularly with Abby Ward dropping 20 seconds in her 100 back, Lauren Wilson dropping 9 seconds in her 100 breast, Mia Moreno dropping 6 seconds in her 100 free, and Americus Berg dropped 15 seconds in her 500 free! Unfortunately, we did not prevail.  However, these time improvements show the hard work being put in by each team member!
