Rails vs. Newton & Oskaloosa | Tuesday, Dec. 1st; 5:30PM: The Rails have their first home meet of the season on Tuesday. The meet should be an exciting one, as Newton was a very strong team last season. However, the Rails are working hard to be 3-0 after Tuesday double dual meet.
Rails vs. Ottumwa | Thursday, Dec. 3; 5:30PM: The Rails will be swimming against the Ottumwa Bulldogs at home. With just four home meets this season, we’d love to pack the stands with maroon and gold as we cheer on the guys to victory!
