On 01/08/2010 the Burlington High School Swim team took on the perenial power house of Chelmsford H.S. Lions. The Lions are a large team that swims year round, however the boys of the Red Devils took them on in stride. During this swim meet the Red Devils only took one (1) first place finish and that was in the 100 Meter Breast Stroke Event. Junior Shane Ryan won this event with a time of 1:13.08. This time was not his personal best however; it was more than enough to beat Chelmsford HS breaststroker Kim Yie who's time was 1:15.83.
During this swim meet the Red Devils performed like a team. They cheered each other on and they managed to keep their competitiveness and spirit high on this date. However; they fell to the Lions to the score of 97 to 70. Our next meet is on monday 01/11/2010 against Reading High School - Red Rockets. This meet will be held at the Shawsheen Tech. Swimming Pool at 4 PM.
Go DEVILS!!!!! - Coach Steve Papagno
