Manhasset Middle School Girls Swim Team Had a Winning Season
What a season it was for the Manhasset Middle School Girls Swim Team. From the season opening event, a Relay Carnival at Great Neck South on September 29, the Manhasset Middle School Girl's team showed great promise. Despite other teams having two and three times as many swimmers as the Manhasset team, our girls proved that strength was not necessarily the number of swimmers, but in the fewer seconds it took to swim the races. The Manhasset team won most events which was an indicator for the season to follow.
