Tigers outswim Panthers
Several Raymore-Peculiar swimmers reached personal bests in the meet against Lees Summit Jan. 17 at Harrisonville.
We have several varsity swimmers out with injuries right now that we hope to have back by conference, Ray-Pec head coach Matt Majors said. I am extremely proud of the girls they have really stepped it up this year, breaking several school records.
Lees Summit won the meet 246-33.
The girls swam as well as can be expected, Lees Summit head coach Bruce Holder said. Their times are a little rough but they also swam nearly 9,000 yards for the day and every day this week. That is all part of the process. This week we will be totally run down and the next two weeks we will recover to be ready for the conference meet at the end of the season.
Lees Summit won all three relays and took individual first places in every race.
