Apaches swim team takes ninth place at MAIS State Meet

LAUREL, MS. — The Glenbrook Apaches swim team recently took part in the MAIS State Swim Meet in Laurel, Mississippi.

The team placed ninth overall in the event. Each swimmer was allowed to swim in two individual races and two relays only.

More than 20 teams participated in the meet, with Glenbrook and Claiborne Academy being the only Louisiana schools that competed.

The coaches and sponsors wanted to say that they were lucky to have such talented swimmers to work with. The majority of these students swim summer league at the Minden Tennis and Aquatic Club, where they received excellent coaching over the years.

Kayla weeks and Cam O'Riley should be praised for all the hard work they did in helping coach this team.

Thanks also go out to Dr. Naomi Coyle for organizing the 2011 Glenbrook Swim team and Coach Ryan Porter and the Glenbrook Booster Club for their support.
