GREENVILLE – The Greenville boys swim team won its regular season finale on Friday, defeating Arcanum, Botkins, Coldwater, Houston, Minster and Tri-Village at the YMCA of Darke County in Greenville.

Greenville won the boys portion of the meet with 83 points. Minster finished second with 74 points, Coldwater was third with 38, Arcanum finished fourth with 22, Houston was fifth with 14, Tri-Village finished sixth with 12, and Botkins placed seventh with eight.

“I’m so happy because we’ve been trying all year to win a meet,” Greenville swim coach Mollie Mendoza said. “We’ve been waiting to do this, and the boys really stepped up today. We’ve had so many time drops today. I think every single boy dropped time in all their events. I think that because of all their hard work all season, this is the culmination of that, and they won. So I’m so happy.”

Minster won the girls portion of the meet with 117 points. Coldwater finished second with 104, Greenville placed third with 33, Arcanum was fourth with 22, Tri-Village finished fifth with 12, and Botkins was sixth with nine.
