The Spring Lake girls swimming and diving team beat Muskegon Catholic Central on Thursday, 92-78.
The Lakers had several state qualifying times, including Meghan Peel, Jen Muelenbelt, Roxane Strobel and Ellen Hyde, who won the 200-yard medley relay in 2 minutes, 1 second.
The same quartet also turned in the best time in the 400 freestyle relay, coming in at 3:57.71.
Meulenbelt was first in the100 backstroke, with a time of 1:04.
“The difference between our last meet and tonight was like night and day,” coach Penny Zacek said. “We were extremely pleased with what we saw in the pool tonight. Three state qualifying times is not a bad dual at this point in the season. In addition to the state cuts, we just competed much better than Tuesday.
“This is kind of a brutal week for us (with) three meets in one week. Plus, two-a-day practices make for some tired athletes. For them to be so successful tonight shows the heart that this team has. They just needed to realize it.”
The Lakers compete next at their home invitational at the Spring Lake Community Fitness and Aquatic Center on Saturday.
