“Williamston is one of this area’s top teams this season. They have a lot of depth which made it very difficult for us to match up with them. Our guys had a good night with many good performances. This was a pool none of our guys had ever competed in before and that made them a little apprehensive going in. Once we got going, they swam and dove great,” said coach Kim Brewbaker. Redwing swimmer, Shane VanAbel won the 200 Freestyle and diver Sam Hudgens won diving to take home the only individual wins for St. Johns. The Redwings turned in 22 individual best performances in the contest. “We have a lot of season left and a lot of good meets coming up so we hope to continue to see steady improvement. One of our goals this season is to have improvement from week to week and that’s what we’re getting out of the guys right now,” added Brewbaker. St. Johns next competition will be Thursday Jan. 23 when they host DeWitt.
