Rangers eighth at SEC Relays

The girls’ swimming and diving season began for Forest Lake at the Suburban East Conference Relays held last Thursday in Stillwater. The Rangers placed eighth out of 10 squads.

The team’s best finish, second place, came in the diving relay, which featured Jessica Dhaene, Katie Dison and Maddi Gemuemden.

The swimming events were highlighted by a sixth-placing showing in the 200-yard breaststroke relay. Senior Kellie Welch, sophomore Jordyn Templeton, sophomore Rachel Chatwin and ninth-grader Emma Dolby combined to finish in 2:25.97.

Stillwater topped Woodbury by 26 points for the victory. Mounds View came in third, followed by East Ridge and Hastings. Roseville and White Bear Lake also topped the Rangers, who beat Cretin-Derham Hall and Park.

Forest Lake continues the season with a dual meet at Mounds View this Thursday.
