Bright, sunny skies welcomed six local swim teams to the Tomah Aquatic Center for the 2018 Tomah Torpedoes swim meet held Saturday. Swimmers from La Crescent, Galesville, West Salem, Sparta and Reedsburg joined host Tomah for the competition.

It was the fourth meet for the Torpedoes, who competed in multi-team invitationals at Sparta, West Salem and Galesville before returning home for their final event of the season and breaking several new records.

“It was my first time coaching Tomah Torpedoes this year, and I’m happy with how the swimmers have tried to swim what we’ve taught them at our practices,” said Torpedoes coach Bruce Cuda, who has helped coach the winter swim team for several years.

The Torpedeos had 44 swimmers competing in a total of 124 events. They won 32 first-place ribbons this season.

The Sparta Seahorses won the meet with just 12 swimmers and went home with the team trophy.

Torpedoes coach Julia Koput was encouraged by the number of Tomah youngsters who came out for the sport.

“Swimming is a growing sport nationwide,” says Koput said. “and to see it growing right here in our area … well … that’s just so exciting!”

Tomah results were as follows:
