Blue Waves Place Third at 2014 State Meet

Congratulations to the Blue Wave 2014 State Team on taking third place in the ILMSA 2014 State Championship Swim Meet! Despite fielding the a smaller than usual roster of 57 swimmers this year the Blue Waves pulled together, swam hard, swam fast, and put together enough points to bring home the third place trophy.

Ben and Krista earned high point awards in their age group. Several swimmers brought special heat winner plush bear awards. Everyone had some great swims, some fast times, and a good time overall. Click to see State Meet 2014 photos
