Swim: Gators beat Albany, fall to Sauk Centre

The Morris/Minnewaska Gator girls swimming and diving went 1-1 in dual meets this past week. The Gators defeated Albany 61-41 on Thursday, Sept. 6 and fell to state-ranked Sauk Centre Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Sauk Centre.

The Gators open the home season against Staples-Motley Thursday, Sept. 13, at Minnewaska Area High School in Glenwood.

At Albany

The Gators had 1-2 punch in three events, including the 200-yard freestyle relay, to lead them to a 61-41 win over Albany Thursday, Sept. 6, in Albany.

“I was impressed with our swimmers’ composure throughout the meet. They knew it would be a close meet. The depth in our relays proved to be the difference in a four-lane pool because the scoring is different,” head coach Linda Hoffmann said. “Our A and B relays girls are really interchangeable with one another. I was pleased with our finishes to out touch the Albany girls.”

The 200-yard freestyle relay of Shannon Dougherty, Ali Femrite, Hannah Hoffmann and Michele Stai took first in 1:49.12. The relay of Morgan Steinke, Liz Murken, Julia Kuehne, and Audrey Dorweiler finished second in 1:52.28.

Femrite and Kuehne took first and second, respectively, in the 200-yard IM by a difference of 0.07 seconds. Bailey Schoen and Lacey Entzi were the top two finishers in the 100-yard backstroke.

Other first place finishers included: Stai in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 27.79; Jaida Hess in diving with 145.9 points; Entzi in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 1:08.92; and the 400-yard freestyle relay team of Dougherty, Femrite, Entzi and Hoffmann with a time of 4:02.53.
