Swimmers cruise to wins at home relays

Sweet Home swimmers opened their season hot Friday, capturing the bulk of the wins at the non-scoring Sweet Home Relays.

“We had a good overall team effort,” Coach Doug Peargin said. “All 24 of the kids on the team swam and placed in at least one event.”

The Husky girls posted eight relay wins and the boys earned four first places.
