STORM LAKE - A packed house at the Finkbine pool at Buena Vista University helped bid farewell to the Storm Lake seniors who have just two regular season swim meets remaining.
The crowd saw the Tornadoes set nine personal bests, but they came up short overall as they fell to Sioux City Metro, 14-79, and Spencer, 15-78. Metro topped the Tigers, 50-44.
Senior Peter Winterton had a strong meet, taking second place against Spencer in the 50 free, the 200 medley relay, and 100 breast. Thomas Patton earned personal bests in both the 50 free and 100 free, and Kieran Cullen set personal bests in his splits in the 200 and 400 free relays.
Storm Lake still has meets at Boone on the 27th and Carroll on the 29th before districts on February 7th.
