Based on seed times, Todd Fritze expected a close battle between Park Rapids and Bemidji to determine the Section 8A girls swimming and diving champion.

A down-to-the-wire finish was avoided when the Panthers clocked 30 season-best times during Friday's preliminaries at Bemidji and followed with 17 more season bests during Saturday's finals.

Despite not winning a single event, the Panthers relied on their quality depth to easily repeat as section champs.
