PHS Swim team has done amazing this season! With the region competition right around the corner, these students work hard to qualify for state. Unlike other sports, the only races that matters for state is region. This Year Seth Peterson, Travis Pitcher, Kaden Flippen, Case Kunz, have had a record breaking season, and are going to state.
