The Redwing Swim and Dive team started their season later than they hoped but at a familiar event.  Each season the Waverly Relays kick off the year with an all relay event.  This year it was hosted by East Lansing.

The Redwings have a very small but talented team this year, lead by new Head Coaches Peter Sperry and Katelyn Childers.  We look forward to the rest of the season.

200 Freestyle Relay

Koy Grams leads off the stacked Redwings 200 free relay. The Redwings are just off the pace, in 2nd place.

Preston Longoria inches the Redwings moves the Redwings closer to first with a solid swim.

Shane VanAbel’s third leg brings the Redwings even closer, within striking distance.

Freshman Ella Schafer starts slightly behind Dewitt’s anchor.

On the final lap its too close to call. Lane 2 St. Johns, Lane 4 Dewitt.

Koy and Preston talk it over.

Coach Sperry gives Ella the good news, by this much!

The Redwings celebrate winning the final event!
