2 already qualify for state
Two members of Marion County’s combined girls swim team — Lauryn Vogt and Olivia Carlson — already have qualified for state, and two relay teams are close to qualifying.
Competing in the Northwest Invitation in Wichita, the finished eighth out of 18. At Hutchinson YMCA, the team placed second out of five.
“I am really proud of where the girls are swimming right now,” coach MacKenzie Magee said.
The next swim meet will be Tuesday in Newton.
“I think that the team is starting to come together and I have enjoyed seeing it,” Magee said. “All the girls attend different schools, so they have to work a little harder to mix, but I am starting to see them come together.”
