The Tongie Tidal Waves season officially has started.

The team had its first meet Friday against Piper.

Tonganoxie has 134 swimmers this year, while Piper had more than 110. Piper won the meet, 300-23iewrei

The swim season continues this Friday with another home meet. It starts at 7:30 a.m. and will be against Lake Quivira and Lake Forest. The meet is expected to finish up around noon.

On June 23, the squad heads to De Soto for a meet. Tidal Waves coach Janet Falk said this is De Soto’s first year in the league, so its squad will be fairly small.

Competition will start at 7:30 a.m. both days, with swimmers ages 5-10 swimming June 29 and participants 11-18 swimming June 30.

Leavenworth, Eudora, Bonner Springs and De Soto will be joining Tonganoxie at the league championships.

Falk founded the Tongie Tidal Waves team in 2009. This marks the eighth season for the Tidal Waves, who practice and have all of their home meets at Tonganoxie Water Park.
