Saturday afternoon, the Spartan Swimmers and Divers opened their season with a Quadrangular meet competing against Wooster, Canfield, and Warren Harding at Warren Harding High School. “Our kids were ready to race. They have been training in the water since late October and have been
conditioning in the mornings before school since September. We are stronger and faster at this time than last year, but the Wooster girls swam a solid meet. This gives us additional motivation for the NEAC Championships in January,” stated Coach Carlo Cordon.

Single event winners include junior Alexis Mihok in the 100 Butterfly (1:02.76) and freshman Petra Crnjak in the 100 Breaststroke (1:11.77).
