WARREN, NJ - With the regular dual meet season coming to a close this week, the Governor Livingston girls swim team took the opportunity to add another win to their record, outscoring Plainfield 124-36 at an away meet on Tuesday.
In anticipation of the upcoming state tournament meets, Head Coach David Closs gave many of his seasoned swimmers the day off, giving some of the younger swimmers a chance to shine.
