Marshalltown High School and the Marshalltown YMCA celebrated hosting the IHSAA boys state swim meet for the tenth time. Marshalltown should be proud of its reputation as a community that knows how to coordinate a first-class event. I would like to offer my thanks to the people who made this a success. Without the YMCA staff under the leadership of Carol Hibbs, Gary Ross, Shelley Lechnir and Christine Gilbertson, we could not do this. The following volunteers received many compliments from spectators and IHSAA staff alike on how well run and efficient this event was. Next year's boys state meet will be on Feb. 14 see you there!
