We continue our highlights of outstanding performances by individuals in the Astound TV Network’s coverage area this week.
We begin this week’s focus in the pool!

(Please note: the Colonial League decided several years ago to do away with their league “all-star” lists and that is why no schools from that league are represented. Their exclusion from these lists is the school administration’s decision and not ours.)
