PLYMOUTH â€” As the swim season winds down, Plymouthâ€™s swim squads can reflect back on an unusual season.
With the closing of the PHS pool last year to make way for the new School of Inquiry technology center, the 2012-13 season got off to inauspicious beginnings. Plymouth contracted with nearby Oregon-Davis to host its swim practices, and the daily drive has cut into the teamsâ€™ time in the water. Without any home meets, a schedule set exclusively on the road has been challenging too.
But the Pilgrims have made the best of it.
PLYMOUTH â€” Ancilla College student athletes continue to do well in the classroom as well as on the court and on the field of competition.
The Ancilla College Athletic Department reports that 40 of the collegeâ€™s student athletes finished the 2012 fall semester with a 3.0 grade point average or better, including 17 of these students with a 3.5 GPA. Overall, the average fall athlete GPA came in at 2.662.
