Rockford wins West Michigan Relay event at home

When Rockford’s women swimmers agreed to host this year’s West Michigan Relay, they did not expect to beat OK Red conference champion, Ottawa Hills, but they did expect to give them a run for their money. That’s just what the Rams did Saturday, Sept. 11 at their high school as 15 of the toughest West Michigan teams met for the annual relay championship.

The Rams were strong throughout the day-long event, starting out in second place behind East Grand Rapids in diving, with divers Erica Finlayson, Macie DeGraaf, Katie DeHaan and Maggie Setterington.

The Rams continued to stay strong, finishing within the top four teams throughout the swim portion of the meet and winning two of the events outright: the 200 breaststroke relay team of Lauren Girard, Rachel Romain, Morgan Lipe and Kennedy Cutler, and the 200 butterfly relay team of Lexy Caster, Taylor Downs, Sarah Smith and Alaina Smith.

By the end of the meet, Rockford was the clear leader with 354 points, West Ottawa second with 336, East Grand Rapids third with 334, and Zeeland was fourth with 280 points.

Rockford’s B team spent Saturday at Union High School competing in the Birds of Prey relay meet. The Rams placed fourth behind the A teams from Byron Center, Catholic Central and West Catholic.
