Barracudas tops at Finals
The Louisburg Barracudas completed their sweep of the South Suburban Swim League 2009 season as they swept away the compeition at the League Finals held Saturday, July 25, 2009 at the Butler Aquatic Center. The event, hosted by the Butler Torpedoes, found some rocky going early, as team warm-up periods had to be cancelled because of inclement weather with thunderstorms in the area, and then had to be suspended for a hour and fifteen minutes because of more lightning and rain, but the afternoon saw bright, sunny, high skies and the Barracudas found smooth sailing, becoming the first team in a long time not named Harrisonville to find it's name engraved in the championship spot on the final trophy.
The Barracudas easily outdistanced the runner-up Woodson Sharks, piling up 563 points on a day which saw Louisburg place swimmers in the top six places in 42 of 50 individual races and finish first or second in 12 of 20 relay races. Woodson, the newest member of the SSSL completed their first season by coming in second place in finals with a team total of 485.50 points to drop perennial league champion Harrisonville to third place. The AquaCats accumulated 427.50 points on the day to finish third by a comfortable margin over the Paola Piranhas who swam to at total of 211 points.
Rounding out the event were the Golden Valley Dolphins with 109 points and the host Butler Torpedoes with 86 points. The weather which controlled the morning sessions, was unable to deter the hightlight of the event, as the American Flag was delivered by skydivers during the singing of the Natonal Anthem.
