Boys 15-18 Events Distance Change!

Stephanie Viola

The Suburban Swim League voted on a significant change for our 15-18 boys events this past week. The 15-18 boys will now swim 50's in breaststroke, freestyle, and butterfly, and will continue to swim 100 freestyle.

This change comes after much discussion of the equality of girls and boys 15-18 age groups. Also, many teams in the league have seen a decline in participation from the 15-18 boys age group due to swimming 100 yards in every stroke. The league hopes this change will show an increase in 15-18 boys' participation. 

With that being said, the 15-18 boys now have a new record board to create!
