In its penultimate home meet for the 2019 season, the DeForest girls swim team splashed past visiting River Valley 118-52.

“It was a really nice win for the girls and a great meet all around,” Norski coach Matt Engelhardt said. “We had a chance to swim some different events and I was really happy with how everyone got up and raced. We had a ton of lifetime-best times and I’m happy with how everyone is swimming right now. We have one more big invite coming up next Saturday and then we start to look toward finishing our conference season strong.”
