ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - With no state series to look forward to in boys swimming, teams are finding ways to compete with multiple schools. Guilford hosted one of the few non-conference meets on Saturday. The Byron Co-op came out on top, sweeping the Vikings and Rockford Christian.

As the only schools fielding a boys swim team from the Big Northern Conference, the Royal Lions and the co-op have had to get creative with their scheduling. The co-op is comprised of swimmers from Byron, Dixon and Stillman Valley.

Both Rockford Christian and the Byron Co-op will take part in the Jefferson Invite on March 6, which may be the closest thing to a sectional meet these swimmers will get to compete in this year.
