Spuds edge BHS swimmers in close meet
The Bemidji girls swim team suffered a 99-87 loss to Moorhead Tuesday at Bemidji High School.
"I am very happy with a lot of the swimmers tonight," Bemidji head coach Scott Leindecker said. "We swam well tonight and a lot of best times. That is especially nice for this time of the year."
The Lumberjacks opened the meet with a win in the 200 yard medley relay. The winning team consisted of Erin Arndt, Steph Frey, Jamie Vanasse and Danielle Hoven.
Moorhead won the next three events to take an early lead.
Jana Hedstrom won the diving event for Bemidji with a score of 194.30.
Frey captured first place in the 14th event, the 100 freestyle. She finished with a final time of 54:03.
The Spuds took the next three events to extend their lead with a pair of wins from Lauren E. Arnold.
Frey and Hoven finished first and second, respectively, in the 100 breaststroke to close in on the Spuds lead.
Bemidji closed by winning the final event, the 400 freestyle relay but came up short in the final tally.
The winning relay team in the final event consisted of Kenzie Timms, Katie Krause, Alyssa Wright, and Jordyn Olson.
The meet was the final regular season home meet for Bemidji's four seniors: Hailey Erickson, Hedstrom, Olson, and Timms.
"Kenzie had a career meet tonight," Leindecker said. "Jana was on the board and won again as she always seems to. Hailey and Jordyn also had great meets to go out on."
Bemidji will swim at the Grand Rapids Invite on Friday.
