Three swimmers from the Greater Miami Conference brought home individual state championships this weekend. Ashley Volpenhein, a sophomore from Mason High School won two state championships by winning both the 50 yard and 100 yard Freestyle events. Mark Andrew, a senior from Middle town High School won the 200 yard Individual Medley. Joshua McDonald, a sophomore from Lakota East High School came home a champion in the 500 yard Freestyle. Congratulations to these three amazing young people for their outstanding efforts.
Last night at Hamilton the Lakota West girls team completed a perfect league season with a 16-0 final record. In so doing they became the third team (boys or girls) to attain a 16-0 record.
Note: In the eight previous seasons that a 16-0 record has been possible no boys team in the league has been able to do it. Mason is the latest to make a run at this mark as they now stand at 13-0.
