GAMBIER — Mount Vernon sophomore Maggie Williams is about to make school history.

On Saturday, she will become the first female swimmer in school history to compete in two individual events at the OHSAA district finals when she takes her spot on the starting block at the Ohio University Aquatic Center in Athens.

Williams, who comes from a family of noted swimmers, will participate in the 200 and 500 meters freestyle. She is a distance swimmer and she’ll be looking for a strong finish to propel her into a possible berth in the state finals.
