Region VI schools hit the pool for first time together at Hamme
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - While a head-to-head meet between Monroe Catholic and West Valley High School officially kicked off the 2021 swim season, this past weekend saw all of the schools from Region VI dive into the waters at Hamme Pool for the Lathrop Invitational.

West Valley boys and girls racked up 326 points to take the combined team scores title, while North Pole finished runner-up with 97. Lathrop rounded out the top three, while Valdez, Hutchison and Monroe - who feature smaller rosters - followed behind.
Swimmers will have an extended time without competition, as Hutchison will self-compete on September 17th, before all of the Region VI schools gather for the Valdez Invite September 24-25.
