Ailing Jays excel
The Merrill girls battled superior numbers and health when they visited D.C. Everest for last Thursday’s dual meet and took a 116-43 loss.
“This week the team took a hit by the sickness bug which hurt our numbers and the ability to perform when healthy,” MHS coach Allie Thut said. “Even under the circumstances we had some phenomenal swims. In each event we had at least one person drop time and had all three of our 500 free-stylers drop time. The team continues to work hard which can be seen by their continual drop in time.”
The Bluejays’ best event was the 100 breaststroke, where they went 2-3 with Jennica Jahnke (1:19.02) and Miranda Jahnke (1:22.34). They also had a runner-up finish in the 200 free relay with the Jahnke girls, Emily Gessler and Holli Halfman (1:59.05).
Thirds came from Kendyl Pettit (50 free, :27.85/ 500 free, 6:10.85); and J. Jahnke (100 free, 1:03.34).
Taylor LaBorde (6:57.61) and Courtney Grieser (6:58.57) cut time in the 500 free.
