No problem for Laker swimmers vs. Sherwood
Lake Oswego's swim teams rolled over Sherwood last week, continuing to lower their times as they get ready for the most important stretch of the season.

Ryan Sklar and Doug Heymann followed with a 1-2 finish of their own in the 200 individual medley with Sklar winning in 2:08.15, less than half a second ahead of his teammate.
Lake Oswego swept the 50 freestyle with Jordan Leis winning in 23.58 seconds, followed by Andrew Goodall and Sam Wolff.
