Silver for Spring Lake

The Spring Lake swimming and diving team still hasn't lost to a fellow Division 3 school this season.

Spring Lake took second at its home meet on Saturday, finishing behind Division 2 Northview.

The Lakers, who are in their second year with coach Jason Lintjer at the helm, finished fourth at their home invitational last season.

"We just want to improve on that (finish), and obviously get a trophy," Lintjer said. "We did just that. It was one of our goals at the beginning of the year. I'm pretty pleased with how we swam today."

While Northview was the clear winner Saturday with 550.5 points, Spring Lake's 430 was 150 more than third-place Hudsonville Unity Christian.

The Lakers got the job done with their consistency, placing competitors near the top of nearly every event.
