All of the girls who participated in the swimming meet on Sept. 22 from Walla Wala High School and Wenatchee were awesome. It was clear that both teams were prepared for this meet and swam their very best.
Girls from both sides won. However, the outstanding quality was the quiet elegance of sportsmanship displayed by our Wa-Hi girls. Whether swimming their first season or their last for Wa-Hi, they were the first to extend "congratulations" to their opponents and, more important, to each other regardless of their placement at the finish line.
Now, that's a quality they can be proud of -- swimming ambassadors.
