NEWPORT FINISHES 2017 at 6TH PLACE IN THE NKSL AND PROVIDES FREE SWIM LESSONS TO MORE THAN 70 CHILDREN!

In its sixth summer of swimming and diving competition, Newport swimmers and divers continued to establish firsts, including setting the Penguin's first two Northern Kentucky Swim League records:
- Jaeger Ellerman set the NKSL 9-10 boys 50 breaststroke record with a time of 40.26, breaking a 27 year old NKSL record that was held by Jaeger's uncle
- Mac Russell set the NKSL 13-14 boys 50 freestyle record with a time of 25.68, breaking a NKSL record that had held strong for 17 years
- Grace Hedger became the first Penguin to win at the NKSL Diving Champ Meet, capturing the 9-10 girls' division

Overall, the Team finished 6th in the NKSL, won its division, and closed the regular season with its best record: 6-2. GO PENGUINS!

In 2017, the Penguins became a USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash partner and grant recipient! Due to the support from Make a Splash and the Penguins' local sponsors, in its third year, the Junior Penguins Swim Lessons Program provided more than 70 Newport children with FREE swim lesson instruction.
