Chieftain swimmers make big splash at sectional meet

Bellefontaine Chiefs

It was a highly successful weekend for the Bellefontaine swim team at the sectional tournament in Trotwood.

The Chieftain boys competed on Friday and qualified for the district meet in two individual events and two relay events.

The Bellefontaine girls followed Saturday with a tremendous effort, earning district berths in three individual events and three relay events.

“All of our swimmers had strong races and I am proud of the entire team,” said BHS head coach Sharon Lewis. “The fact that we were able to drop time at the most important meet shows a lot about our athletes. They trusted our workouts. They put in the time, effort and pain every week. They watched their times stay steady and had plenty of frustrating moments. But if you ask them today, they will tell you it was all worth it.”
