The Morris / Minnewaska Gator girls swimming and diving team kept the meet close with state-ranked Sauk Centre Tuesday, Sept. 12 in Morris. The Gators ended up falling 106-80, but head coach Linda Hoffmann was happy about the Gators’ performance Tuesday night.

“We kept it close, typically we get exhibitioned the last 2-3 events,” Hoffmann said. "We came in ready to swim even though we had tough workouts this past week. I was very pleased with their performances as we are continuing work on the details of swimming- starts, turns,and breakouts."

Jaida Hess scored 146 points and achieved section status, Hoffmann said. Julia Kuehne also had another section qualifying time in the 100 freestyle event.

Lacey Entzi won the 200-yard IM and the 100-yard backstroke.

The Gators travel to Staples-Motley Thursday, Sept. 14.
