Swim Senior Night

More records fell Thursday night at the pool in a dominating senior-night win for the Stormin’ Viking Swim team as the home team controlled the meet from the start.  Motivated by a narrow early season short-handed loss to Williamsburg – the team came out fired up and lead from start to finish in a 73-29 win. On the night the Stormin’ Vikings won 10 of 11 events and finished first and second in the final 6 events of the evening.

Storming Vikings set 26 New Season Best Times

Grinnell came to town Tuesday and the Storming Vikings met them with yet another strong performance in convincingly winning a dual meet 58-36.  Both squads were down a few kids due to illness or injury, but the Grinnell was without one of their top performers which certainly made the final score a bit more lopsided than the talent levels of the two squads would indicate.
