SWIMMING

Swim team returns
The Yellow Springs High School swim team is back!

Not able to support a team last school year because the Antioch College Wellness Center, their practice venue, closed because of the pandemic, the Bulldogs moved this year to the Xenia YMCA. The team is still recruiting swimmers to finish out the season. Interested high schoolers should contact Yellow Springs Athletic Director Jeff Eyrich or team coach Ashley Mangen.

The team kicked off the competition season at the Huber Heights YMCA on Saturday, Dec. 18, for the Bethel Quad Meet against Bethel High School, Fairborn High School and Bellbrook High School.

In the girls 50-yard freestyle, Devyn Deal finished ninth (34.15) and Malaya Booth finished 11th (34.62).

In the boys 50-yard freestyle. Even Galarza finished eighth (32.79).

In the boys 100-yard freestyle, Galarza finished fourth (1:17.98).

In the girls 100-yard breast stroke, Deal finished second (1:36.32).

Congratulations on a great first meet of the season!
—Ashley Mangen, coach
