The Eastern Kansas Swim League was back in action Friday for the second week of the season.
The Lansing Sea Lions hosted the DeSoto Dolphins. The Dolphins are a newer team in the league so the Sea Lions were able to get an easy team victory due to the size difference.
Sea Lions coach David Bresser was happy with the team’s performance in the final home meet of the short season.
“We had a lot great swims today from our Sea Lions,” Bresser said. “One of the more impressive aspects was that we have swimmers trying new events and doing well. We had some disqualifications today, but the kids are learning and improving each time they go out.”
Skylar Yoder and Anna Yedlinsky both won four events each for the Sea Lions.
The Leavenworth Riptides hosted the Eudora Barracudas. Like the Sea Lions, the Riptides’ coach was happy with the results.
“The little swimmers are making big strides in the pool,” Skye Murray said. “They continue to show great strength and endurance as they learn to perfect their strokes and build up their endurance. I see more and more of them placing as we go into these final two meets.”
Both teams travel for their meets next week. Lansing will travel to Bonner Springs and Leavenworth will be at Tonganoxie. The two teams will face off at 7:30 a.m. on June 29 at Wollman Aquatic Center.
