Merrill Girls Swimming Takes Title at Lodi Invite

The Merrill Girls Swim Team took first at the Lodi Invite with 507 points, edging Monroe/New Glarus by 8 points.

“Merrill’s depth really showed again this weekend in Lodi.  Our small but strong team brought home a win against several of the division 2 Madison teams we will hope to see later this year at state,” said Merrill Girls Swimming Coach Kristie Winter.

Amber Winter took first in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke for the Bluejays.

Merrill also claimed first in the 200 medley relay.

“It’s always a mentally and physically challenging meet for our team getting up and leaving by 530 am and then swimming against new teams brings a different kind of stress for the girls.  We really pulled together and everyone brought home the points they needed to,” Winter added.

2. Monroe/New Glarus HS Swim Team 499
