ALEXANDRIA — The Partially-depleted Ruston High School boys and girls teams each nabbed second in their respective divisions and combined for an overall second-place finish in the 33rd Alexandria High School Invitational Saturday.
The Bearcat and Lady Bearcat teams were missing 11 swimmers due to illness and another school function, according to head coach Paulette Crawford.
“Missing 11 swimmers hurt us in team points, but those swimmers who competed did a nice job and finished with some good times,” Crawford said.
