The Selinsgrove Swim Team has been in existence for almost fifty years but one record still stands above all the others.
In 1976 Sue Groce broke the record at the Selinsgrove Pool for the 100 Free with a time of 1:07. Its forty years later and still one has been able to beat it.
“It took a lot of hard work,” Groce told the Orange Street News.
Swimming runs in Sue’s blood. Her father Richard Reiland was the founder the swim team.
Sue is happy to have Selinsgrove’s longest standing record but still has a sense of humor about it.
“I wasn’t sure if maybe the record was beaten and maybe somebody just forget to remove my name from the record board,” Groce told the Orange Street News.
Sue, a popular English teacher who recently retired from Selinsgrove High School, still likes to swim in her pool but is now focusing her energy on directing plays.
