"The girls really came together as a team and it really paid off," said Head Coach Sheri Ressler.

The victory was a combined team effort as the Yellowjackets took the title with no second place finishes and only one first place finish: Kelsey Kratzke's win in the 100 breaststroke.

"Everybody there scored for us and moved up a notch. We had a good showing all the way across the board."

The 200 and 400 freestyle teams, the 200 medley relay team, Rylie Rothmyer in the 200 and 500 freestyle, Bailey Meyer in the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly and Kratzke in the 200 I.M., all finished third place in their events.

At Moorhead, the swimmers took on Class 2A Moorhead and fell three points shy of upsetting the Spuds losing 94-91.

"The girls continue to give it their all. This meet was close right down to the end again. Even though we came up a few points short, this was the best we have ever swam against Moorhead."

The 200 medley relay team of Zoe Potts, Kratzke, Meyer and Natalie Murphy took first place.

Jackie Hanson added a top finish in the 100 freestyle. Meyer again won the 100 backstroke. Likewise, Kratzke swam away from the competition in the 100 breaststroke.
