The Amity Girls Swimming and Diving (AGSD) Team celebrated Senior Night on Monday, Oct. 13 with their 43rd consecutive win — this means the girls who’ve been on the team since they came to Amity, have never lost a meet.

Coach Todd Rainey will have to wait until 2015 to hit the landmark 50 wins, but with his coaching skills and the girls’ talent, we believe we will see it happen. 

The Lady Spartans go up against Lauralton Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 15 in Orange and away at Cheshire next Monday, Oct. 20 to round out the season.
