Congratulations to the Lyons Township High School Boys Swim Team for winning the Illinois State High School Sectional Meet, at Downers Grove (North) High School, Saturday, February 19. In Illinois, to qualify for the State Meet swimmers must achieve their qualifying time at the Sectional Meet, so it's a pressure-packed meet. The Lions, entered the meet with ZERO qualifying times achieved during the regular season.
At the end of the day, the team qualified all three relays (200 Medley Relay, 200 Free Relay, and 400 Free Relay). Additionally, the team qualified individual swimmers in the 200 free, 50 free, 100 free (two swimmers), 500 free, and 100 fly. Every member of the team posted personal best times, and the 400 Free Relay achieved a Junior National time, 3:11.73.
Here you can see the happy boys outfitted in great swim parkas from Splashwear! Great job Lyons Township and good luck at State!
