MIDDLEBURY — The sky was overcast and the breeze cool as the Middlebury Panthers and Vergennes Champs entered the municipal pool in Middlebury Tuesday evening. It was the only meet of the summer season in which the county rivals would face off.
Each team had about 60 swimmers at the meet. A team from Winooski was also in attendance, swimming against Vergennes.
The Champs fell to the Panthers 192.50 to 254.50, while Vergennes beat Winooski.
With two weeks to go before league championships, the swimmers struggled for their best times in the chill air.
