LYC swimmers top tough Seaford team
The Lewes Yacht Club swim team remained undefeated with a 290-253 victory July 1 over Seaford Swim Association. In the close meet, LYC's depth in the relays turned out to be the difference as the team won eight of the 12 freestyle relays and six of the 10 medley relays.
