Congrats to the WHS Boys and Girls swim teams, nice job! Congrats to Mr. Knight! And congrats to the Westfield YMCA Devilfish Swim program for successfully building a pipeline of great swimmers for WHS year after year.

>Westfield YMCA Devilfish Swim program for successfully building a pipeline of great swimmers Actually WY is losing it's edge of late- although the majority of swimmers do still swim at WY, the boys underclassman high scorers came from other local teams - namely Cranford Gators, and FSPY (fanwood scotch plains). The girls also have a high scorer from FSPY. Without the contribution from other programs WHS wouldn't have won Union county Champs let alone state champs. I do reiterate that the kids deserve a lot a credit for a great job!!
