SDMS started their USA swimming season with outstanding swims at the ACAC Autumn Opener meet held in Ames Friday-Sunday (10/16-18). With 10 teams in attendance, there was great competition. In fact, several swimmers met Midwest Regional “Q” times already! Plus – the Seahawks had 18 finishes in the top 6 and won three events!
