For a handful area girls’ swimming teams, the 2008 season will begin outdoors.
Four teams — Vinton-Shellsburg, Prairie-Williamsburg, Decorah and Charles City — received waivers from the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union to compete in an invitational Saturday at Vinton. Diving will begin at 10:30 a.m.; swimming at 1 p.m.
Watch for K.J. Pilcher’s story on the matter in Thursday’s paper.
