Head Swim Coach, Allen Gilchrest commented: Hats off to the Limestone swim team and Coach Sanders. This was our most exciting dual meet of the season! Our EC guys won 6 out of 11 events, and lost 4 events by just .60 tenths of a second combined. We knew it would be a close meet. Our only dual meet loss last season was to Limestone, a team I started in 2006. This year, Limestone will most likely be our only dual meet loss of the season, but it was a great meet with fast swimming from both sides. We give God the glory!
 Next up, the Lions compete against Milligan College in their final home meet of the season, this Saturday January 30, 2016 at 1:00pm. This is also the Lions Senior Day, a celebration ceremony will start at 12:45pm.

Please come out and cheer on the Lions and our Seniors!
