By Cort Reynolds

LIMA__The Ada High School swim team qualified four swimmers to the Bowling Green district event by competing well in the sectional meet at the Lima YMCA on February 10.

Junior Lily Baumgartner returns to the district meet for the third year in a row by winning the 100-yard freestyle and 100 backstroke events. She also begins her quest to return to the state meet in Canton for a third straight season.

Bulldog freshman Tim Chrissobolis made it to the BG district meet by finishing fourth in the 200 individual medley. 

Ada sophomore Lydia Demascio qualified in the 100 backstroke.

Bulldog sophomore Alyssa Nau made it to BG in the 100 breaststroke.

The district meet is at Bowling Green on Friday, February 16. 

“Everyone did great and dropped time, for the majority,” said Ada head coach Ashley Robey. 

“I would like to thank the swimmers, parents and community for all the support this season. It is always appreciated,” she added.

Ada freshman Jacob Szippl finished a solid sixth in the 100 free and ended up seventh in the 100 back. 

Senior Jack Baumgartner touched seventh in the 500 freestyle race.
“Good luck to those swimmers that qualified and ‘awesome job’ to the rest of the Bulldog swimmers who swam their hearts out at sectionals,” said Robey.
