The 2011- 2012 Rebels swim team ended their swim season against Keystone Oaks on Tuesday, February 14th. The girls won their meet and went on to win the section championship. The girls have been undefeated in their section with a 7-0 record (overall 12-4). The swim program has been at Seton for 6 years and this is our first section title for the sport. It’s a big accomplishment for the team, but it’s only just the beginning. The regular swim season might be over, but many swimmers will continue on to WPIALS which will be held at Trees Pool, University of Pittsburgh, on March 1st and 2nd.
