Sickness and injuries have plagued the ladies team this year. They swan and dove through the pain and many of them had best times/scores of the year. Jordan Sieglitz broke the 200 point barrier with another win in the diving well. Kara Church came back from hiatus last week to win the 200 free. Kelly Church won the 500 free. Good luck next week in the “Queen of the Pool” meet.

Meet Recap

The Mountain Lion Men won by only 2 points. The difference can be seen in every event. The divers went 1-2 and won that event 10-0. Cole Truitt found a new favorite event in the 200 IM winning by over 5 seconds. The relays went 1 & 3 in the 200 medley and 200 free out scoring Horizon 10-4 in both events. Tyler DeMers out touched a Horizon swimmer to take 5th place. That was a 2 point swing in favor of Ridge. If we would have taken 6th in that event, the score would have been tied. Matt Pedersen had a personal best in the 100 fly on his way to a victory and he also won the 100 back. Peter Gmyrek was victories in the 100 breast. He was later quoted at the team dinner that night “I didn’t know I could swim that fast.”
