Rails Top Carroll; Now 4-1

The Rails faced off against Carroll at home on Tuesday (12/13). The guys performed well and earned a nice victory against a very competitive Tigers team. The win makes it a three-year winning streak for the guys!

The Rails won the Medley Relay, capturing the lead from the get-go. The guys didn’t relinquish the lead the entire meet. Final score: Rails – 98.5, Carroll – 70.5.

“We just keep getting faster,” said Coach Weber following the meet. “The guys haven’t taken a break yet. We just keep pushing. Despite the tired muscles, the guys keep improving. This is a great thing heading into winter break training. Break is where the guys focus all of their energy on practice and getting into tip-top shape for the meets remaining, including post-season meets.”
