The Two Harbors girls swimming team won its first home meet of the season last week against Cloquet-Esko-Carlton.
“This was a very exciting meet with a lot of very close races,” said Head Coach Tara Kasell. “Last year, we tied our meet with Cloquet, so the girls wanted to win very badly.”
Not only was it a big win, but a confidence booster.
Two Harbors took eight first place finishes in the event, including with the team of Jennie Dwyer, Emily Riemer, Heather Fynboh and Rachel Spies winning the 200 medley relay, along with Andi Dahlgren, Rebecca Ronning, Spies and Dwyer winning the 400 free relay.
Dwyer also took down individual titles in the 500 free and 100 backstroke. Dahlgren also won the 100 and 200 free.
Ronning took first place in diving and Fynboh won the 100 butterfly.
“Their spirits where high and just about everyone improved on their times, some by as many as 4-5 seconds,” Kasell said.
The Agates also competed in the Soderlind Invitational last week. The team finished in fourth place with Ronning placing first in diving and Dwyer taking third in the 500 freestyle.
