The SHS boys’ swim team wrapped up their weekend by bringing in first and second place in the Greater Miami Conference or GMC. The men’s team brought the GMC trophy back to Sycamore for the first time in 2 years after SHS boys four year winning streak.
Sophomore Alex Newberg said, “It was great to win GMC’s now we just have to take that momentum to sectionals and give it our best shot and do well.”
The GMC is comprised of several different schools across the Cincinnati Area including Colerain, Fairfield, Lakota East, Lakota West, Princeton, Middletown, Mason, Oak Hills, Hamilton, and SHS. Each team enters four swimmers for every event, and can enter one relay.
