Rockford swims to another top spot

The Rockford women continued their winning streak Thursday night, Oct. 7, out-swimming Grand Haven 182-124 in the Grand Haven pool. The Lady Rams had little competition from the Buccaneers, taking eight out of 12 events with ease.

The 200 medley relay team of Casey Wolfer, Kennedy Cutler, Lexy Caster and Jamie Van Portfliet took first place, and the B relay team of Morgan Longberg, Morgan Lipe, Madison Trimble and Lauren Girard took second to start the meet on a strong note. Sarah Smith and Adrianna Craft continued taking first and second in the 200 free. Freshman Stephanie Mull took first in the 200 individual medley, and Van Portfliet, Wolfer and Girard took first, second and third in the 50 free.

Rockford’s divers, Katie DeHaan, Macie Degraaf, Erica Finlayson and Maggie Setterington, were especially strong, finishing one, two, three and four. S. Smith, Trimble and Taylor Downs continued strong, finishing in the first three positions in the 100 butterfly.

Not until the seventh event, the 100 free, did Grand Haven get the top spot, which Rockford answered by taking the top four places in the next event, the 500 free, with Craft, Kayla Kidder, Kelly Baker and Elliana Raymond. Grand Haven then eked out another first in the 300 free relay, and Rockford answered with the top three places in the backstroke by Wolfer, Longberg and Downs.
