Swimmers remain undefeated, eye tough SLC squad on Friday 

The Lady Bears were once again victorious in the pool as they advanced to 8-0 this season with a defeat of the Wildcats of Gouverneur on Monday night.  With this victory, the Canton Lady Bears Swim Team extended their win streak to an impressive 117-0.  Coming off a challenging two weeks of training, the Lady Bears rose to the occasion placing first in nine of the eleven events against the Wildcats.  Multiple event winner Maya Thomas was victorious in the 50 free and 100 fly.  7th grader Kaitlyn Redfern put down some season best times in the 100 free and 100 breaststroke.  

When asked about the meet, Coach Stuntz said “The ability to race hard, each race, is an important piece of being a well-rounded, successful swimmer.  The team is showing that drive as they push towards a tough meet this Friday and then onto Sectionals”.
