Despite competing against a shorthanded Crookston squad, head coach Todd Fritze was impressed with the times turned in by the Park Rapids girls swimming and diving team during a dual meet at the Area High School pool on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The Panthers went 1-2-3 in six events, went 1-2 in the first two relays and took first in diving before swimming exhibition in the final three events in coasting to a 108-36 victory. The win gave Park Rapids a four-meet winning streak and a 4-1 overall record this season.

Maria Wagner, Massie Lee, Savana Damar and Ellie Ulvin won the 200-yard medley relay in 2:07.72 while Addison Lauwagie, Gabi Shepersky, Analise Smee and Lizzie Seifert followed in 2:10.33 as the Panthers jumped out to a 12-2 lead.

The Panthers went 1-2-3 in the next three events. Emma Vrieze won the 200 freestyle in 2:08.92 while Aleah Voigt (2:09.13) and Ameila Bagstad (2:23.46) followed. In the 200 individual medley, Ulvin led the way with a 2:32.93 with Lee (2:35.21) and Smee (2:35.47) following. Lauwagie (27.13), Damar (28.50) and Maya Deshayes (29.32) set the pace in the 50 freestyle. Those showings gave Park Rapids a 51-10 advantage.

After Brielle Krabbenhoft took first in diving with 143.20 points, the Panthers swept the next three events.
