Kate Handle, Jordan Patterson, Devyn Olson, and Audrey Conley made the 3+ hour trip to Canton, Ohio to compete in the Ohio High School State Swimming Championships this past Wednesday.  The ladies made huge waves during the 4-hour meet. The team was led by junior Audrey Conley who finished 7th in the 200 Freestyle and 4th in the 500 Freestyle while swimming a season best time. Junior, Devyn Olson matched Conley with a season best time in the 100 Butterfly finishing 17th. The four lady Spartans then combined twice, first in the 200 Free Relay going a season best time and finishing 21st.  The relay was led off by sophomore Jordan Patterson with a season best split time. First timer Kate Handle showed she belonged at the “best HS swim meet in the country” by posting personal bests on both relays! The ladies finished the season with a 21st place finish in the 400 Free Relay. With all 4 girls returning next season this could be a foursome to watch!
