Swimming Forest Hills defeated Grand Rapids Christian 98-84 in action at Calvin College by showcasing it’s team depth. “Tonight we were trying to find out if some of the other guys could step up and handle the spotlight”, explained head coach Dennis Neat. “Our season is starting to wind down and we are still looking at team members and seeing where they can help us out in the line up.” This was evident in the meets first event as The “Hills” opened the meet going 1-2-3 in the 200 Medley Relay.
