New Swim Flags At NEO

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M has new backstroke flags in their aquatic center.

Miami Auto Super Center and Sid & Lori Hackwell recognized the need and donated the flags.

The backstroke flags are a string of flags that run across the width of a competitive swimming pool to signal to swimmers the exact distance to the wall.

"Backstroke flags are a very important for turns and finish of the backstroke," said Lori Hackwell. "We were excited to be able to help with the installation of the flags that will benefit so many people."
