    Cordell, Derrick, Edward, Joe, Sam, and Wayne represented the 2 schools competing in the 50-meter freestyle swimming championship. Ribbons were awarded to the fastest swimmers in first, second, and third place. Each team had 3 swimmers. The scores are listed in the score box.



    • Even though the total time for the Home team was 93.46 seconds, Derrick from the Visitors team was the fastest swimmer of the day.
    • The Home team's Cordell swam .5 second faster than Edward.
    • Joe helped the Home team capture 2 of the 3 ribbons.
    • Wayne was more than 2 seconds slower than Edward.


    Who swam for each team, and what was each person's score?
