The Dhahran Pool was where the action was last Wednesday as a revitalized Abqaiq swim team swamped their Najmah rivals, 59-41, and at the same time broke three Dhahran Pool junior high records.
Abqaiq's Mary Kay Cain won an impressive first in the girls freestyle with her record-breaking time of 0:37.85 seconds, then topped the record books again with a 0:47.9 win the backstroke.
Teammate Lindsay Fogelquist's 0:56.9 time in the butterfly altered the records for the third time, breaking the time of 0:59.4 set by Dhahran's Mary Clevenger the week before.
Najmah's team came on strong in both the firsts and boy medley races, and Karen Hartley and Kurt Cleaver won firsts in breastroke and backstroke, respectively, but from then on, it was Abqaiq's day in the winners circle.
