Midland University’s swim team took the pool for the first time ever on Saturday afternoon as they took part in a triangular meet against William Jewel University and Barton County Community College. The Warriors went 1-1 on the day as they fell to the Cardinals 83-33 then defeated Cougars 69-44.
As a team the Warriors took third and fifth in the 400m freestyle relay. They also took fourth and fifth in the 200m medley relay. The top two Warriors teams in each earned automatic cuts for the national championship meet.
Midland will be back in the pool next weekend, closer to home, as they compete at College of Saint Mary. First swim is set for 11:00 a.m. at the Lied Fitness Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
