Steph Frey has been testing her skills in a variety of events this fall and Tuesday at the dual meet in Detroit Lakes Frey's new challenge was the 500 free.
"Steph only swam this race once before," said BHS coach Woody Leindecker.
Frey more than passed the test in the endurance race as she added her name to another school record when she hit the wall in 5:22.62. That time beat the previous BHS standard of 5:24.89 which was established by Kari Flathers in 2001. Frey's time also shattered the Detroit Lakes pool record of 5:29.0.
Frey's contributions helped the Lumberjacks down Detroit Lakes 170-136 in a meet that was scored to eight places.
Joining Frey, who also won the 200 IM in 2:17.16, as individual event champions were Danielle Hoven in the 50 free (27.41), Jamie Vanasse in the 100 fly (1:08.78) and Lexie Hendricks in the 100 free (1:00.48).
The Jacks also claimed the 200 free relay as Hoven, Kenzie Timms, Erin Arndt and Frey combined for a time of 1:48.82.
Contributing seconds were the medley relay unit of Frey, Hoven, Vanasse and Timms (2:03.91), Vannase in the 200 free (2:18.19), Timms in the 50 free (27.67), Jana Hendstrom in diving (203.25), Arndt in the 100 free (1:01.92), Jordan Olson in the 500 free (6:07.13), Hoven in the 100 breast stroke
(1:17.79) and the 400 free relay team of Hendricks, Katie Krause, Alyssa Wright and Arndt (4:09.60).
