RIPTIDE MMA FIGHTERS WIN AMATEUR DEBUTS

Reyes (185 pounds) won with a knockout in 16 seconds courtesy of a right hook, while Edenfield (155 pounds) won by TKO at 2:30 of the first round in his bout.

FINS HOST IMX SWIMMING SERIES

The Fins swim team recently hosted the IMX Ready and IMX Challenge meets at the Shell Hall pool in Bluffton, bringing in 60 swimmers to compete. Hilton Head Aquatics and the Columbia Hydrated Rogue teams participated in the unique events.

As opposed to regular swim meets, the IMX series is designed to have swimmers compete in multiple events, rather than specializing in one stroke. Swimmers earn individual power points.
