Rubleski won with a score of 199.55, while teammate Makayla Boyink placed third at 171.65.

“It was so exciting tonight because Makayla and Shelby Munch both threw new dives and Paige really had her concentration game going tonight,” said diving coach Barb Brackett.

The divers’ performance wasn’t enough to carry Spring Lake to a win at the meet, however, as FHC prevailed, 109-72.

Head coach Kim Arnold highlighted strong swims from Roxane Strobel in the 200-yard yard individual medley (2 minutes, 31.20 seconds) and the 100 breaststroke (1:18.74).

The Lakers’ 400 freestyle relay also captured first place in a time of 4:21.61. The team consisted of Strobel, Shelby Arends, Aubrey Rolston and Ellen Hyde.

Spring Lake hosts its final home meet on Thursday against Ludington. The meet will also be Parents Night.
