The meet was the last of the year for the Wolves who will continue working out during the Christmas break before coming back Januray 4, at home to host Carl Albert and Mid-Del at the Shawnee YMCA.
The Wolves had three weeks where they weren't able to use the YMCA pool for practice and are trying to play catch up, Colburn said.
“We were doing good and that three weeks kind of set us back,” she said. “We're going into Christmas break and we're going to hit it hard.”
