The Vermillion Area Swim Team is hard at work in the pool and has been since this past September preparing for meets across the region. This week, three VAST swimmers were notified by South Dakota Swimming of their selection to the South Dakota All Star team that will compete in Lawrence, KS next weekend in the Midwest All Star Invitational.
Swimmers must have applied and achieved a top five ranking of all individuals who applied in their division from across the state of South Dakota.
The three swimmers from Vermillion are: Maddie Lavin � 10 and under division; Kyleigh Chandler � 11-12 division; Madisen Martinez � 11-12 division.
Each swimmer will compete in six to eight events during the entire weekend competition. �This is a great accomplishment not only for the three girls who were selected, but also for our team,� said Head Coach Mike Moran. �I have no doubt they will have some amazing results at such a fast meet.�
Maddie Lavin participated last year in the All Star meet as a nine year old; it is the first time being selected for both Kyleigh Chandler and Madisen Martinez.
