Area swimmers keep busy with summer meets

On Saturday, June 29, 2019, at Hummer Sports Complex in Topeka, Kan., the annual Sunflower State Swimming Games were held. Swimmers from all over the state came to compete in different strokes and distances. Two local swimmers, Martir Ramos and Austin Vest, both members of the Lyndon Swim Team, were competitors at these games and came out successful. Martir placed first in the 200 Individual Medley, third in the 50 Breaststroke, and fourth in the 100 Breaststroke. Austin placed third in the 50 Backstroke and fifth in the 100 Breaststroke. Both boys will finish their summer strong swimming for the Lyndon swim team.

These area teams, consisting of members from Overbrook, Osage City, Lyndon, Lebo, and Burlington, gather together every Saturday to compete in 80 different events challenging the swimmers in their different strokes and distances.

On July 6, at the Lyndon City Pool, hundreds of swimmers and spectators gathered there to enjoy a morning full of competition.
