Lander Boys 16-Peat, Gillette Cruises to 4A Title in the Pool.
Teamwork can pay off, even if no one wins!
The Lander boys swimming team won their 16th straight boys swimming state title...but this one came without a single state champ for the Tiger swim program.
Instead they got runner up in 5 different events, but that was enough to take them over the top.
