The Tomah Torpedoes Summer Swim Team traveled to Galesville on Saturday, July 14 for the second meet of the season.

Teams from Trempealeau, Blair, Holmen, Arcadia and West Salem, along with host Galesville, were in attendance. More than 150 swimmers competed in 70 events.

 "This was a really big meet for us,” Tomah coach Cathy Coffey said. “Some very competitive swimmers from around the region were here today, and Tomah did quite well - bringing home 14 first- place finishes."

Hannah Wilcox-Borg took top honors in the butterfly; Anthony Lord was first in the butterfly and individual medley; his brother Evan Lord also was first in the IM for his age group. Evan Lord joined Jake Bauer to win the freestyle relay.

Bauer dominated three out of four of his events, handily winning the freestyle and butterfly, along with the relay.

Hannah Zaehler won the backstroke and joined teammates Maddy Neve, Madeline Coffey and Samantha Coffey to win the freestyle relay.

The Torpedoes assistant coaches, Isaac Neve and Samantha Coffey, were kept very busy with a full Tomah team and were called upon to fill out relay teams, each swimming in the final event.

The Torpedoes compete again Thursday, July 26 in West Salem and will host the final meet of the season Saturday, Aug. 4 at 8:00 a.m. at the Tomah Aquatic Center. Admission is free to come and watch; concessions will be available.
