SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls' top swim teams are combining into one.

The Snowfox Swim Team and the Seals Swim Team have announced that they are merging their organizations the Sioux Falls Swim Team.

The groups say that the timing is ideal with the fall opening of the Midco Aquatic Center. They say pool space has been limited in Sioux Falls, and the teams intend on using the increased space in the most efficient manner possible.

Sioux Falls Snowfox was established in 1967 and has 150 swimmers. The Sioux Falls Seals was established in 1999 and has 85 swimmers.

Both teams feature collegiate level swimmers at the Division I, II and III levels.

The merger was approved by an overwhelming majority of board members from both clubs.
