The Oskaloosa Indian swimmers went to their conference meet on Saturday in Boone and showed once again that the program is continuing to move in the right direction. Last year they were only able to be on the podium a couple of times and this year they were on the podium in 7 out of the 11 events.

The seven schools in our conference that were all there competing were Boone, Decorah, Williamsburg, Newton, Grinnell, Vinton Shellsburg, and Osky and every team can put their top 3 swimmers or their top 2 relays in every event.

One of the major awards handed out during the meet went to Jack Miller as he earned a spot on the Academic All-Conference team for the Indians as he met all the requirements of being a senior, having a 3.5 GPA and being a varsity swimmer.
