Undefeated Dolphins eye title

By From page A8 | July 05, 2013

The Dry Diggin Dolphins topped off their big week with a solid 1886-1068 win over the visiting Rancho Cordova Blue Marlins last Saturday.
The team started off its week with the annual swim-a-thon fundraiser. This year’s teams goal was to swim enough miles to reach Hawaii.
After Hannaford Bush sang the National Anthem, the program honored graduating Dolphins: David Bath, Nick Seaton, Ryan Plexico, Carson Stumbaugh, Garry Wreidt, Tyler Watkins, Ellen Tiedemann, Jessica Clough, Clare Kessler and Shelby Ganzert. Together these swimmers have swam 99 years for the Dry Diggins Dolphins.
The day was hot, yet the Dolphins swam fast.
“It is always great to go into Championships being undefeated. However, we have great respect for the teams in our league and know they are working hard to remove the Championship Title from our team,’ coach Kristen Stumbaugh said. “We have to swim hard, practice with discipline, and respect our competition. When we do that, we will be prepared and see how it all falls in three weeks. I have faith in our swimmers.”
Dolphins take this weekend of the Fourth of July off and next weekend they are having a fun practice meet followed by their annual Boat Regatta and Dolphin Dance with Silent Auction. Spirit week will kick of with these events as the Dolphins prepare for their third VFCAL Championship Title in a row.
Listed below are the top Dolphin finishers.
