The St. Joseph’s Academy swim team competed in the third and final Capital City Swim League meet of the 2018 season, amassing 484 points on its way to a first-place finish. The meet was held October 6 at Crawfish Aquatics.
Rounding out the top five were University High (283), Parkview Baptist (255), Episcopal (250) and St. Amant (177). Ten teams competed in the meet.
“This was our last regular season meet,” said head coach Becca Gilbert. “We had some great swims today. Some swimmers went their fastest times yet, and the meet ended with a neck-and-neck seniors versus freshmen relay that ended with finishes less than a second apart.”
