Several members of the Hudson swimming and diving teams participated in the 2019 Junior Varsity Championship Saturday at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton.
"This is a great end-of-the-season meet for some of our swimmers that don’t have the opportunity to compete at the sectional meet," Explorers head coach Matt Davis said. "They run a great meet for the kids at the state-meet pool. They also get the kids who finish top eight on the podium, so it is great to see their hard work pay off in a great environment.
"Our team had tremendous depth and we really showed that by placing so many swimmers on the podium."

"I was really pleased with all of our boys, but the three freshmen Sean (McMullin), Andrew (Constable) and Ethan Clemens, really improved a ton throughout the season," Davis said. "Their improvement is really going to help the boys team continue to get better for years to come. Ethan had a huge drop in the 200 IM and went 1:02 in the 100 backstroke, which is a really great swim for a freshman."
