The Bemidji High swim team hopes to move up a place or two today when it swims at the Hibbing Invitational.

Last year it advanced three places to finish fifth in an eight-team field and would like to battle into the top three today.

Bloomington Jefferson won the 2006 crown by 25 points over Grand Rapids with Hibbing and Simley preceding Bemidji. Superior, Richfield and Virginia trailed.

Much the same field is expected today.

Bemidji will be looking to nap back from a less than top showing at Moorhead last week where it fell 101-82.

That dropped its dual meet record to 5-2.

It has only one meet left after today, closing at Duluth East Tuesday

Bemidji already has beaten Grand Rapids badly in head to head competition and would like to advance past Hibbing as well today. Not much is known about the Twin Cities teams.

Bemidji's only win last year came from Tyler Sand in the 200 free Felix Dyrna was second in the I. M.

That pair has departed but the Jacks have made rapid progress this year

Coach Woody Leindecker has worked his swimmers hard all week and has them tired but ready to go today

He will open with Mike Arnold, Nick Lee and Matt Wilcox in the 200 free, Abe Cummings and Derek Buckanaga in the I.M., and Josh Faecke, Jared Vanasse and Paul Voss in the 50.

Adam Freude, Evan Parrott and John Walberg will dive.

The fly finds Blake Collison, Cummings and Voss with Lee, Greg Moriarty and Voss in the 100 free and Arnold, Tucker Asper and Wilcox in the 500.

The backstrokers are Asper, Faecke and Moriarty with Collison in the breaststroke.

The relays will be made up today.
