Dolphins 50

Past met the present last Monday night (June 3) as the Berea Dolphins swim team celebrated 50 years during an event at the Berea Community Pool. Team president Sandy Briggs said the gathering was twofold – gauging the skill level of swimmers for the upcoming season and bringing in alumni to celebrate. “Instead of doing a time trial like many teams do, we just gave (current team members) an opportunity to swim against our alumni swimmers, some of whom are still active in college,” Briggs said. The squad has 97 members, and Briggs said the team caps out at 100. The Berea Dolphins will host two regular season meets (June 12 and June 19) as well as the conference meet on Monday, July 8.
