Among the highlights for the local swimmers were a second place finish by the 200-Meter Freestyle Relay that included Samantha Hedrick; which Hedrick complimented with a third-place finish in the 400-Meter Freestyle Relay. She also finished third as an individual in the 100-Meter Freestyle. The team will swim again Tuesday in a dual against Marshalltown.
