Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

With three lightning delays totaling over an hour in wait time, swimmers had a slow start to the Northwest Kansas Swim League swim meet Saturday, June 8 in Wray.

Taking 42 competitors to the meet, Holyoke Swim Club earned fourth place overall.

Goodland Swim Club had the highest combined team score with 244 points, followed by Wray 230.5, Colby 205, Holyoke 185.5, Oberlin 162.5, Burlington 114.5, Flagler 59 and Oakley 36.

Holyoke swimmers completed the meet with eight first-place finishes. Many other swimmers also placed in the top six.

Coach Brenda Krueger noted the huge improvements on times made by the 8 and under swimmers. The young swimmers have moved past the jitters and are starting to understand the process.

The dedication of the 12 swimmers in the 8 and under division shows in how hard they work at practices.

Coaches Aly Brinkema and Adria Colver were proud of the overall improvement in the swimmers’ flip turns during the freestyle and backstroke events. Many other teams now skip this important part of the race.

Holyoke will compete in the next NWKSL meet Saturday, June 15 in Oakley, Kan.
