Tuesday afternoon kicked off Olympia’s competitions for the day with the Spartans boys swimming and diving at LaSalle Peru. This was the last meet for the OHS swim and dive team and junior Neil Alford said, “It was a good way to end the season considering we only had two swimmers most of it due to quarantine.” All of the members of the team got PRs in all of their events. Neil also placed 3rd in the 200 Free. The swimming Spartans had a great year.
