Southwestern's swim teams scored a pair of tri-meet wins at home on Tuesday.
The Rebels combined for 17 wins on the night. In the girls meet, Southwestern scored 129 points to South Ripley's 100 and Charlestown's 16. In the boys meet, the Rebels scored 135 to pull away from South Ripley (25) and Charlestown (19).
"Overall, the meet went well tonight. We changed things up a bit and gave some kids the opportunity to swim some new events," Southwestern coach Jay Crawford said. "We feel that it pulled them out of the rut they've appeared to be in for the last few meets.
