BROOKVILLE — The Pennsylvania YMCA Western District Meet is set for Eastern Ohio, actually, and the Brookville Barracudas have a big contingent headed to the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
The Barracudas’ team membership, with the temporary shutdown of the Clarion YMCA team due to the renovation project at Clarion University, swelled to 98 swimmers this season with 29 coming from the Clarion area.
That helped raise the quality as well and 25 are headed to Ohio this weekend to try to qualify for the state meet with a top-six finish, or a wild card finish with a fast enough time.
The YMCA state meet is at Penn State University March 23-25.
