WAVE Swim Team hosts annual swim meet

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) Local student-athletes are making a splash this weekend.

WAVE Swim Team hosted its Frostbite Swim Meet at the RW Houser Family YMCA in Onalaska.

More than 200 swimmers from Wisconsin and Minnesota competed.

One coach says it’s a unique chance for the friends and family to come out and cheer on the swimmers.

“It’s our only home meet of the winter season, so it’s a great opportunity for us to swim and not have to travel. We do quite a bit of traveling so this is a nice change of pace for us,” head coach, Samuel Bowman, said.

This is the 20th year WAVE Swim Team has hosted this home meet, but the first year they’ve done it at the Onalaska Y.
