Synchronized swim team captures second at state

Congratulations to the synchronized swimming team who placed second at state! The Ponies swept the entire “short” division (like JV), and many of our routines scored higher than normal. Stillwater had a total of 23 routines qualified to compete at state, and all but one of them placed and earned points. In 46 years of competition the Ponies have either come in first or second place - with 18 championships and 28 runner-up finishes. In addition, two Stillwater swimmers were named All State: seventh grader Paige Schmit and freshman Juliana Silva. For more photos visit our Facebook page.
