ST. ALBANS — The Middlebury Marlins swim team wrapped up their Champlain Valley Swim League regular season on Thursday with a 254-188 setback at St. Albans.

Although the Marlins won just once during the CVSL season, a number of their swimmers have excelled and should do well at the CVSL meet, at Essex on July 27 and 28, and the summer championship meet, at Hartford’s Upper Valley Aquatic Center on Aug. 4 and 5.

As a smaller CVSL team the Marlins could also be competitive in a statewide division vs. comparable teams at the Vermont meet.
