"This was the first time that Southwestern has defeated Madison in this meet. We were very impressed with the team effort given by the girls tonight," Southwestern coach Shelly Anderson said. "The last relay determined the winner of the contest. Our team has doubled in size and every swim was important for us. We had some kids really step up for both the boys and the girls. We had several best times for both teams. We have a lot of new swimmers this year who are really dedicated athletes. We're enjoying having a full pool during practices."
