Blackford hosted the Elwood Panthers Thursday night in a boys’ and girls’ swim meet. Both teams recorded dominating wins. 

Coach Kristie Malott said, “In spite of a few injuries on our team and shuffling athletes around to meet our needs and get the points needed, we were greatly successful. I can say we are honestly working smoothly as a combined team. The future of Bruin swim looks strong.”

With the win, the girls improved to 3-6. The three wins has already tied last year’s total with 7 duals remaining. 

The boys improved to 7-1 with 8 duals remaining. The most wins in any season for the boys since ’94-95 is 8 wins which was accomplished last year and in ’95-96.
