Crozet Wins JSL Championship and Halts Fairview's 22-Year Reign
The Crozet swim team put an end to Fairview's 22-year reign as they beat Fairview 1,908.75 points to 1,880.75.
This year was Elsa Strickland's last year as a Gator before she heads to college at JMU and she said it isn't only a huge deal that they beat Fairview, but it means a ton to the Crozet community.
"It means a lot to us. They've won championships for the past 22 years. Since before I was born. Since its my final year, its a great going away present. I was crossing my fingers. I was really praying that we would pull out and win. When I heard the final news I was so excited. Its cool because we're the only swim team in Crozet so its our whole community that swims on this team. We all know each other, its a small town. When we get together we have a lot of fun and we swim well," said Strickland.
