It was quite the day for Lawrence Park’s Briana Klock and Ridley Park’s Braydan Saunders, and Ruby Schwelm, Addison Schwelm, Morgan Peterson and Amelia Reno of Broomall’s Lake at the Delco Swim League Meet of Champions Sunday at Ridley Township Swim Club.

Klock was named the girls swimmer of the meet. Saunders received the top honor on the boys side while the Schwelm sisters, Peterson and Reno were named the top relay team in an event that featured 21 pool records.
