After not competing for 10 days because of weather-related cancellations, the Pelican girls swimming and diving team came off the blocks well on Saturday, cruising to a 94-76 victory over the Bearcats of Hotchkiss.

The boys and girls swimming and diving teams hosted the Bobcats from Williston on Wednesday, finishing the day with the boys earning a 89-72 victory and the girls garnering a 96-85 win.

Loomis sophomore Madison Perry broke one of the school's oldest swimming and diving records Wednesday at Kent then shattered the new record Saturday at Andover. Amassing 304.65 points on Saturday, just days after her record-breaking 274.75-point performance, Madison's score eclipsed Irene Corsak's '78 36-year-old school record of 256.30 points.

There's nothing like the unexpected to bolster the resilience of a team as the boys and girls swim teams demonstrated this week.
