Boardman boys swim team bleaches hair before tournaments

The Boardman Boys Swim Team bleaches their hair every year before tournaments.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The boys of the Boardman High School Swim Team were at Beautiful Creations Hair and Nail Salon on Market Street Sunday morning to get a make-over.

Every year, the boys dye their hair blonde. After it’s bleached for a couple of weeks, they shave it off for the Sectionals and District tournaments.

“It’s a pretty good bonding experience,” said senior, Ethan Schwendeman. “We all were just hanging out last night, and woke up together and came here.”

The Boardman Boys Swim Team is currently 11-2 on the season, and will have a meet with Canfield on Tuesday.
