The St. Joseph Lady Indians Swimming and Diving Team was victorious today in the South Bend City Swimming and Diving Championships! This title was the first for the Indians in four years as South Bend Riley had a lock on the championships behind many incredible swimmers who have since moved on to success in college.
St. Joe lined up behind their senior class: Mehan Mrozinski, Taylor Hartman, Katelyn James, Katherine Walsh, Ashley Jenkins and Lydia Schaeffer … and each delivered as expected. Season-best times were achieved in almost all swims which is probably the biggest reason for the win. Despite the most rigorous practice schedule in the history of the program, the Indians seem intent upon rewriting the record books this year!
