Last season, Parents Night for Perham/New York Mills swimmers ended in a one-point squeaker victory for the Yellowjackets over Detroit Lakes. This year, parents got to kick back and watch a performance worthy of a 47-point margin of victory.


The Yellowjackets defeated the Lakers handily 116-69.

Rylie Rothmeyer made the night memorable by breaking the school record in the 500-freestyle in a time of 5:41.99. The previous record was 5:42.87, set in 2008.
