Gothenburg swimmers shine at championship meet

LEXINGTON—On July 15, the Gothenburg swim team made a big splash as they competed for medals at the Plains tSunami Swim League Championship. The event was held at the Lexington City Pool. It was a hot, sunny day and tents were set up on every inch of the surrounding grass for shade. Around the pool it was standing room only as the spectators and parents crammed around the barrier outside the pool area to watch the swimmers. Coaches and time keepers scurried around inside the pool area. It was a fun and busy day as the 26 teams competed for the gold.

Gothenburg had a great day as they won 20 gold, 19 silver and 13 bronze medals.
