Swim team in Top 3 for 2 meets
The combined Marion, Hillsboro, Centre, and Peabody-Burns swim team placed second Thursday and third on Saturday in Andover.
“The team is doing well as our season winds down,” coach MacKinzie Magee said. “We have tried to mix up some events and relays since there were so many meets this week.”
On Thursday in Newton, Talia Jost, Lauryn Vogt, Tanner Plett, and Ainsley Duell won the 200 medley. Vogt also won in the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke. Duell and Leah Brunner placed fourth and fifth in the 100 breaststroke.
“The girls are doing well and dropping time as we wrap up the season,” Magee said. “We don’t have a lot of seniors so I am excited to have most of the girls back next year.”
On Saturday in Andover, Vogt won the 50 and 100 freestyle. Vogt, Jost, Plett, and Duell won the 200 freestyle relay.
“Caitlin Thornhill is really started to get back into it as we wrap up the season, and Maddy Blythe had a fantastic meet, dropping ten seconds in her 100 fly and six seconds in her 100 breast,” Magee said.
Swimming will conclude May 18 to 20 in Topeka.
