Streeter swimming and diving beats Alexandria

The Sauk Centre girls' swimming and diving team picked up one of their biggest dual wins in many years after they edged a very good Alexandria squad by a 98-88 score in the home pool tonight.

Head coach James Schreiner was truly ecstatic about the come-from-behind nature of the win. Read more about the win with individual event results and meet scoring in this week's Sauk Centre Herald.

Schreiner said after the win, "We knew the meet was going to be close. I told the girls we would probably be losing after diving and the 100 fly but not to panic. We really started to click in so many spots. When the Medley Relay took third place, that helped a lot. Diving was huge as well. With Kaylee Hanson going crazy in the fly and Lexie Marthaler dropping nearly five seconds in her swim, that added up."

About what the win means for the team this early in the season, Schreiner added, "The win is huge. When I scored it out before the meet, we came out behind. Having one or two meets like this in a season is really exciting. They make you see what you have and also where you need to improve. Although this win was big for us, it is just one step. We need to keep cutting times and keep getting better."

Up next for the Mainstreeters is the Park Rapids Invitational on Saturday. Diving starts at 9 a.m. with swimming to follow at 12:30 p.m.
