Go Lakers! Come out and support your WBHS Swim/Dive Lakers. It's mid-winter break for the schools, so many of our usual fans will be up north. The Lakers have posted an impressive 7-1 record in dual-meet competition this season, with the biggest team in the program's history. The one loss came at the hands of Clarkston, in what was one of the most exciting swim/dive meets we've seen. Clarkston comes back to the WBHS pool tomorrow to try to beat the Lakers for the OAA White Division title. Other schools competing in the White Division championships include Andover, Avondale, Rochester Adams, Rochester, Oxford, and Stoney Creek. Siwmming Preliminaries are Wednesday (tomorrow), Diving Preliminaries on Thursday, Finals on Friday. Concessions available. Doors open at 3:30pm each day, with the competition starting at 5:00pm sharp. Go Lakers!
