NEWTON – The Framingham High girls swim & dive team has had to face a lot obstacles this season.

First, they are without a home pool, as Keefe Tech closed its pool announcing an estimated $5 million repairs.

So Flyers head coach Micke Foley has the Framingham swimmers & divers practicing at the Wayland Community Pool, where he isthe ehad coach of the co-ed Wayland High swim team in the winter season.

The Flyers second home meet of the season was scheduled for this past weekend at Wayland, but high winds forced a delay in putting the “bubble” on the pool, and thus the Framingham vs Newton North meet became a home meet for the Tigers.

Framingham lost that battle in the pool 96-82 on Saturday, October 1.

Framingham is now 2-3 overall, and will travel to Blue Hill Regional High today, October 3, for a meet against the Wildcats of Milton High at 4:15 p.m.
