SSIS swimmers performed to the best of their ability in last weekend’s Nanjing Invitational Meet, coming 3rd out of 12 schools, the first time we have ever placed as a team at this meet. Certainly, the hard work and consistent training from many of our swimmers is paying huge dividends with nearly all swimmers earning personal bests, heat wins and age group points. Well done team!
