Congratulations to the Belen swimming team, the 2006 Class 2A state champions!
Miami-Dade County's first state title in 34 years in swimming. And for swim fans in Dade it probably felt like 324 years. Props to coach Kirk Peppas and his squad. Those guys came close last year with a few stud swimmers and fell short, but perseverance paid off.
The Wolverines were seeded first in two of the three relays. They exceeded expectations by sweeping all three relays and winning the meet by almost 70 points. Impressive. Let's see if Dade's Class 3A and 1A individuals follow it up over the next couple of days.
