Swimmers fifth at Brainerd Invitational

The Perham boys swimming and diving team finished fifth in last week's Brainerd Invitational.

Four Yellowjackets swam section-qualifying times.

Jayden Cullen qualified for sections in the 200 freestyle. Matt Shipman qualified in the 50 freestyle. Zach Langendorfer qualified in the 100 butterfly and Ben Collette qualified in the 100 freestyle.

"This was a fast meet with great Class AA competition," Head Coach Sheri Ressler said. "The boys did a good job and dropped a significant amount of time since we swam a couple of weeks ago."

Ben Collette had a strong day finishing seventh in the 100 freestyle, sixth in the 100 backstroke and sixth and seventh place as part of the 200 medley relay and 400 free relay teams.
