A BIG SPLASH
Mystic Valley senior Samantha Dagle will put the finishing touches on what has been a phenomenal high school swimming career when she competes in the Division 2 State Championships (to be held at BU on February 17). Samantha will compete in the 200 Medley Relay, 100 Backstroke and 400 Freestyle Relay. Mystic Valley is fresh off an outstanding showing at the North Sectionals where they finished 9th out of 30 teams. The Eagles were particularly strong in the 200 Medley Relay (fourth place) and 400 Freestyle Relay (9th place). Samantha is the daughter of Jim and Maureen (Kelly) Dagle – a Pope John XXIII “hoop” Hall of Famer.
