I really like the depth that the article goes into, but nonetheless, there should be a picture or maybe more than one picture of the meet. I remember last year for some reason the guys swim team won the sectional meet for the first time in 22 years and there was no picture of our team holding the trophy...not sure why that was. So please take pictures of the meet so they do not have to use another picture like a county swimming picture

As a former GHS lady swimmer, I love to see the team, albeit quite a few years later, have such success. GO GHS!
