With temperatures dropping, the last thing most of us want to do is jump into a pool. But for 140 county youngsters, ages 6-17, their favorite winter sport is swimming. Indoors, that is.

The Severna Park YMCA Swim Team (SPY) began its 16th season in November with its 114th and 115th consecutive wins, defeating the Dover, Del., YMCA (522 to 183) and the Talbot County YMCA in Easton (497 to 193). The Y's 11-to-12-year-old-girls have cracked this year's national top 16 YMCA times. They include Kristin Nelson, Laura Bodine, Sarah Kos and Katie DiBlasi, medley relay, with a time of 2:02.22; Laura Bodine, 200-yard individual medley, 2:25.80, and 50-yard breast stroke, 35.49; Kim Kessel, 50-yard breast stroke, 34.76; and DiBlasi, 50-yard freestyle, 27.06.

Competing in the Nights of Columbus-Orchard Fall Festival in November, 17-year-old Nora Grannell -- last year's national champion 100-yard back stroker -- broke the meet's backstroke record. She also holds the top time in the 200-yard individual medley, 2:16.56.
