Bulldog swimmers make a splash
The Bulldog swim team has been a driving force this season.
The team has been training for two and a half months now and the record shows all the hard work is paying off. The girls have earned a 5:1 record for duel meets losing only to Sturgeon Bay.
“I’m proud of our girls and the efforts they are making,” said Coach Stacy Ruckdashel. “I am seeing many girls earn best times at each meet, and I hope we can keep up the momentum through the rest of the season.” The team is preparing for their last dual meet at home against Marinette.
