A small contingent of swimmers from Pella heads to Iowa City today to compete in a multi-day meet against the best in Iowa. The USA Swimming club team is led by head coach Jenny Hedrick, who says the experience of the entire competition will certainly be beneficial to her athletes.

“The facility is amazing; so just seeing and being able to swim in that facility – it’s one of the top five in the country – is huge,” says Hedrick. “Right there alone, you just get your adrenaline pumping to get better times; and having those kids compete against the best in the state is great.”

The USA Swimming State Meet is being held at the University of Iowa Aquatic Center and will run today through Sunday.
