Last weekend, the McMinnville swim team competed in the year-end RACE League Swim Championships at the University of the South in Sewanee. Competing against approximately 500 swimmers and over 10 teams in individual and relay events, the McMinnville swim team finished fifth overall.Coach Todd Willmore, who has been working with the swim team the past few years, saw a great improvement from all his competitors. Though the team was hoping for a higher finish, Willmore was pleased with the effort of his swimmers.“We finished fifth overall, which was good but below our team expectations, since we have finished second or third in each of the last four seasons,” said Willmore.
