The Rails Men’s team won again in a double dual meet on Tuesday (12/1) vs. NCMP and Oskaloosa. The victory against strong NCMP and Osky squads puts the guys one step closer to achieving the goals they have this season. With the biggest team in over a decade, the guys really made a statement as they lined up for the national anthem, cheered for each other on deck and earned a pair of “W”s.
It was also great to see a ton of fans there to cheer on the team, including girls swimmers and parents. The cross-program support is amazing. Thank you to everyone who backs the Rails Swim programs!
