WHAT HAPPENED: In the traditional rivalry trip to Holland Christian, the Hawkeyes fell to the host Maroons by a score of 105-78. The 400 free relay team took first with a time of 4:04.75.
KEY MOMENT: Holland Christian got off to a strong start winning the first two events (200 free medley and 200 free) and never looked back.
THEY SAID IT: ¨The team as a whole did not reach their potential, very few girls got their best times. Many had maintained a consistent time. The effort level was lower than usual, so hopefully next week we can comeback with a high effort level.¨ – Grace Ludema, Sophomore
KEY PLAYERS: Tessa Blankenship took a first and third place finish to help the Hawkeyes.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN: It was certainly a measuring stick for the Hawkeyes as they set their aim on the MHSAA state meet.
UP NEXT: The girls swim & dive team travels to the MISCA meet at Calvin College this weekend.
