One of the winningest swim teams around will be honored tonight by the Du Quoin City Council. The Du Quoin Swimming Indians, coached by Taylor Stanhouse, will be recognized at tonight’s city council meeting beginning at 6 p.m. The team won the Southern Illinois Swim League Championship which is an award the team has received six times in the past seven years. Mayor Guy Alongi told the Southern Illinoisan that this is a big deal for the community and that the parents have really come together to support the team by raising over $50,000 to make repairs to the pool where the swimmer’s practice.
