Despite a girl’s win against Penns Valley, Tyrone was unable to secure any first places against a strong Clearfield team. The boys suffered a 129-41 loss, and the girls lost 120-50. Penns Valley didn’t have a boys team.

“We swam competitive. Having two heats [for a tri-meet] is hard. We just need to keep on improving on everything,” said Head Coach Tom Getz.

I think we tried our best even though we did not win but we saw that our team needs work with our basic drills.”
