Ottumwa High School girls swim team go to compete at state
OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) -The Ottumwa High School girls swim team traveled to compete in the state swim meet in Marshalltown, Iowa.
Families gathered at the overpass near Eisenhower Elementary to give the team a proper send-off and wish them good luck. Abby Leonard, who is a parent of one of the team members told KYOU that this is an opportunity they’ve worked really hard for.
“Being able to compete in the state swim is a huge honor and they’ve worked so so hard some of these girls have swum year-round, they’ve been swimming daily since June and some of them hours a day. They definitely deserve their time at the state meet and they’ll do well.”
