The Shenandoah swim team had more than 40 kids on the roster and competed in more than 10 meets this summer.
Nick Bosley was in his first year as head coach and said the goal right now is to build the program, getting as many kids out as they can.
The kids on the team ranged from high school age down to lower elementary.
Dezi Jordan led the team and was the top meet performer at their most recent competition, July 13 at the Nebraska City Invitational.
Jordan won the 50 meter breaststroke, the 50 meter butterfly and the 100 meter individual medley races while also finishing second in the 50 meter freestyle. She was also part of a champion and runner-up relay and was the meet’s high point winner for the 13/14 age group.
Bosley said they have a few in that 13/14 group, but most of the kids are younger and the team was made up mostly of girls.
In the 11/12 age group, Bosley had eight girls and zero boys. Morgan Cook finished in the top five in three different races to lead Shenandoah’s group at Nebraska City.
Ellie Cook was the leader in Nebraska City for Shenandoah’s 9/10 girls age group. She won the 25 meter breaststroke and finished third and fourth in two other races.
There were nine girls and four boys in the 9/10 group for the season. Hayden Roush led the boys, finishing second twice in Nebraska City.
Tegan Roush was the top performer for Shenandoah’s 8 and under group, which consisted of six girls and four boys.
There were 10 kids on the team in either the 13/14 or 15 and older age groups.
Shenandoah’s girls placed third in Nebraska City with 112 boys. The boys were seventh with 45.
