Twelve members of the La Grande Swim Club competed in the Boise Thanksgiving Invitational in Boise Nov. 21-23.

The swimmers included Tayler Arleth, Shelby Arleth, Chantelle Brown, Moriah Brown, Emily Cook, Matt Cook, Georgia Cook, Logan Gomez, Seth Madsen, Soren Madsen, Josie Sams, and Brandon Taylor.

All of the swimmers competed very well, posting best times in nearly every event, said Coach Tammy Tangney.

Overall, the team dropped a combined total of more than 300 seconds from previously recorded personal best times.

"I was very excited to see the kids improve," Tangney said. "There seems to be a direct correlation between the effort the kids put into their practice and their improvement at this meet. They have been working hard and seem to be proving that practice makes perfect."

The La Grande Swim Club will take Thanksgiving week off.
