But that all changed when a rivalry became a team effort to save a life.

On Thursday, Corunna swimmers Xavier Staubs and Grant Warner had just wrapped up their first event, when they noticed Owosso junior Kamrin Samson was having trouble.

Samson was sinking to the bottom of the pool, Staubs and Warner quickly went into action, bringing Samson to the surface to safety.

Owosso’s head coach, a former police officer, performed a life-saving technique called a sternum rub and Samson began breathing again.

He was then taken to a local hospital.
