This week the Lady Hornets swam their first Conference dual meet of the season against Proviso West. We won on both levels and the girls showed amazing team spirit and great sportsmanship. On Saturday the girls went down to Champaign for their annual invitational. The team was led by sophomore Bryn Larson and Freshman Lexi Smith as they made major contributions to our point totals in the 50 Free, 200 IM and 100 Back. Next week the Lady Hornets face off against Morton for the second Conference dual meet of the season on Thursday, and then have the weekend off.
