The girls and boys swim team defeated Northern Cambria on Thursday February 8th. Both teams soared above the 100 point barrier. The girls crushed with a score of 118-45 while the boys dominated with a 123-36 score.

The two wins helped push Head Coach Tom Getz to his 100th career win. The swim team celebrated with a signed poster and card. His niece, Callie Maceno, read a congratulatory paragraph right before his nephew, Carter Maceno, dragged Tom into the pool.

“It was well deserved. I was happy to be a part of the team when he got his 100th win. It takes a lot of time and dedications to accomplish that over the years,” said freshman Maddie Coleman.
