On Saturday, Dec. 11 Dover hosted a swim invitational for the very first time in the new building. Around sixteen schools came, including Lower Dauphin, Spring Grove, Susquehannock, Red Lion, and Red Land. 

During the meet the top three for the girls were Boiling Springs, South Western, and Euphrates. The top three for the boys were South Western, Susquehannock, and Boiling Springs.

Junior swimmer and diver Jensen Glatfelter has been swimming for 11 years. Glatfelter said, “I feel like the team did an amazing job for our first meet. Everyone’s attitude was good, and everyone tried their best and beat some previous times.” 

Sophomore diver Kenzington Myers has been swimming competitively for about eight years and started because her swim instructor said she would be good at it. Myers said, “Based on how I did Saturday I think there is definitely room for improvement, and I might be able to achieve that. It will really depend on how hard I try in practice and the work I’m willing to put forth.”

Both Glatfelter and Myers said there is a good chance that the boys and girls can both win the division title. “We have a good team with a lot of skill,” said Myers.
