Rails Win 6 Events But Fall Short vs. Riders

Anthem

While everyone in America is getting excited about “October Baseball”, the Rails traveled to Roosevelt to kick off “October Swimming”! With Regionals now just a few weeks away, Tuesday’s (10/6) meet against the Riders was an opportunity to race for faster seed times.

And though RHS won the meet 111-72, the Rails had a great night! The girls won 6 of 12 events, which is particularly important for the two relays. The Rails also won several close races by out-touching competitor swimmers, a nice change from earlier in the season! But most exciting, was the several personal bests swam at the meet!
