Rails Win Third Straight Conf. Champ Meet

The Rails headed to Roosevelt October 21 and 22 for the annual Metro Conference Championship meet. The Rails had the goal to 3-peat the meet for the first time in school history (after winning it for the first time ever in 2017 and repeating in 2018). And they did! The team came away with a big win taking multiple podium spots in all but one event!

“The team did great. We were able to see our conference taper girls have an awesome meet! And really, seeing all their hard work from the last three months pay off never gets old,” said Coach Weber. “Now the Regional swimmers will turn their attention to that meet – which is just 11 days away.”

The team started the meet out with a win the medley relay. And from there, they pushed hard winning 7 of the 11 swimming events (plus the Rails won diving the night before). They also took more than a third 23 of the 54 individual podium spots, nearly 50%!

Final scores

Rails: 371
Roosevelt: 289
East: 176.5
Ottumwa: 144
Hoover/North: 135.5
