The Swimming and Diving Teams competed this past week against South Putnam and Whiteland. The Boys Team came away with a win over South Putnam but fell short against Whiteland. The Girls Team competed hard but fell short to both teams. On Thursday, we were able to recognize the Senior Swimmers and Divers. The 3 seniors will definitely be missed.
