KEY swimmers dominate District Championship

Fourteen Oakwood swimmers who are members of the KEY Swim Team from the Kettering YMCA put on a tremendous display at the Southwest YMCA District Championships at Countryside YMCA in Lebanon during the first weekend in March. Over 380 swimmers representing YMCAs in Springboro, Lebanon, Middletown, Kettering, Wilmington, Lakota, and Fairfield competed in this year’s initial championship meet.

The Oakwood swimmers posted 47 Top 10 finishes and won 8 events, making for a great reward after the seven-month season.  

Some of the Oakwood swimmers participating in this meet have also qualified for the League Championship at Miami University and for the Great Lakes Zone Championship at Cleveland State University. Both of these meets will be held in mid-March.

In addition, a number of older Oakwood swimmers have already qualified for the YMCA Short Course National Championships to be held in April in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  An article on these championships will be published in the coming weeks. Personal results from the meet are shown below.

Spring sports writers sought for Register

The Oakwood Register is looking for a few students and parents to volunteer and cover spring sports at Oakwood High School and write a short story about the games each week. Stories do not need to be “play-by-plays,” just an overview of the highlights and win-loss scores.

Sports to be covered include track, softball, baseball and boys tennis, all on the varsity level.  We also welcome junior varsity tennis and baseball and junior high baseball stories as space allows. Photos are optional.

Anyone who is interested please call Lance Winkler at the Register office,
