RIDGWAY — The Ridgway YMCA Blue Tide swim team is set to compete in the Western PA District Championship this Saturday and Sunday at the Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio.

Competitors had to meet the Western PA District qualifying time in order to compete in the championship meet, and the Blue Tide will have 22 swimmers competing in three different age groups over the weekend.

The squad members will be competing in individual, as well as relays within their respective age groups.

“These swimmers are ready to represent Ridgway YMCA Blue Tide swimming. We are very excited for some good swims this weekend,” said coach Mary Secco. “We all have worked hard all season to get a district team together, and we are very proud of this group.”

The top six swimmers in each event will advance to the state meet, which will be held at Penn State University March 23-25.
