Another Championship for Wando Swimming.

Wando High School’s swim teams swept the competition for the second year running, seeing titles for both the boys and the girls teams.

The state meet was held Oct. 6 in Columbia.

The girls team won by a comfortable 194 point margin over Riverside, and the boys team won over Fort Mill by 133 points.

Although Wando won and had many medalists, varsity boys swimmer Matthew Gush won Wando’s only top individual award, the 500-yard freestyle.
