Flashback Friday - Jersey Shore Wins 2008 Championship Title

Several years of blogging have occurred at the Jersey Shore Swim blog with over 800 stories and articles posted.  With that in mind, the Jersey Shore Swim blog will occasionally pull out an occasional favorite or interesting item from the archives to share with readers (plus some interesting old stuff never posted) in a series called Flashback Friday.

The Greater Susquehanna Valley Aquatic League's Championship meet is this weekend.  Before last year, Jersey Shore was part of the Bald Eagle Swim League where it did very well for many years.  Below is a newspaper clipping from 2008, highlighting their championship win.
