Skyline swimmers come up shy to defending 4A state champions

Susie Miller hoped for a strong finish to the regular season Tuesday afternoon, and that’s just what she got from her Skyline swimmers. “We didn’t come out on top, but to lose by only 16 points to the team that won the (2007) state title is pretty good,” she said. The Spartans dropped only their second meet of the season, falling 93-77 to undefeated Garfield at Boehm Pool. The loss dropped Skyline’s dual meet record to 7-2 record in the KingCo 4A, behind Garfield and Newport.
