On the first two days of March, the best swimmers in the WPIAL Class AA will compete in their sectional championship. Nine of these super-fast swimmers are on our very own Obama Varsity Swim Team. They have qualified for 5 individual events and 4 relays. The competition will start at 3pm on March 1st at the University of Pittsburgh Trees pool, but spectators will be admitted starting at 1:45pm, which is also when warm ups will start.
