The Boardman High School Boys Swim Team competed this past weekend at the Northeast Ohio District Championships held at Cleveland State University Busby Natatorium and placed 3rd behind North Canton Hoover and Hudson in a field of 41 teams. They qualified 2 relays and 2 individuals that will be represented at the Ohio High School Swimming State Championships held at Canton McKinley’s CT Branin Natatorium on Friday and Saturday February 2st and 22nd. “We had a great meet! We had 6 members of our District Team sick this week so we knew we had to keep their spirits up. We wanted them to go out there and just race
and try to get in as many kids into the State meet as possible. It came together at the right time,” Coach Cordon mentioned.
