OSSIAN â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s boys swim team fell seven points short of second place Saturday afternoon at the Norwell Invitational.
The girls team finished fourth out of ten teams at Wawasee Saturday morning.
â€śSome of the boys had tremendous time drops,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Kristen Swonger said.
Cole Smith won both the 50 and 100-yard freestyle events.
Smith was the only Eagle to place first Saturday.
â€śCole keeps getting closer to breaking both school records,â€ť Swonger said.
Swonger said the boys meet was close, coming down to the last two races.
Though the girls placed fourth, Swonger was happy with how the team competed.
â€śThis little team of 13 girls is proving they are small but mighty,â€ť Swonger said.
Jena Bosselman placed second in both the 100-yard breaststroke and 200-yard individual medley.
â€śSome of the girls ran great times,â€ť Swonger said.
The swimmers are back in action tonight for their first and only home meet, hosting Bishop Luers.
