Swimming

Council Bluffs swim team makes strides in season debut

The Council Bluffs girls swim team participated in Tuesday’s Pentathlon meet at Sioux City West. Teams included Sioux City Metro, Storm Lake, Spencer and Council Bluff. Although the meet is officially sanctioned, it serves only as a warm-up so there was no score kept and the 50-yard freestyle was the only sanctioned event by the IGHSAU. The other events will not be replicated at any other meet.

Council Bluffs coach Logan Maxwell was pleased with how his young team performed in the early-season meet.

“We have a team that has just three seniors and one junior,” he said. “The rest are freshmen and sophomores. We had 10 top 15 team finishes, three of those were in the top ten, and we had six that missed the top 15 by around a half second or less from my count.”
