Majettes swim and dive team secures wins against Bismarck High and Legacy
BISMARCK — The Minot High girls swim and dive team racked up two wins against Legacy High School and Bismarck High School at the meet on Tuesday.
Minot earned a 106-80 win against the Legacy Sabers and a 142-43 victory over the Bismarck Demons.
Jordn Wolsky (30.60), Elise Altringer (34.14), Emily Brugman (31.78) and Payton Luzardo (22.45) worked together to win the 200-yard medley relay. In the 200-yard freestyle, Brugman (2:07.61) took second place.
“Jordn has been swimming really well lately,” MHS head coach Emily Jensen said. “Saturday her meet was great, and today with that 50.”
The 200-yard individual medley was overtaken by Sam VonBokern (2:27.78), followed closely by teammate Olivia Peatross (2:28.85).
“I’m so impressed with Sam,” Jensen said. “Every day she just keeps amazing me, from her practice sets, her mental toughness, competitive edge, and her meets. As a seventh grader, to join our team and make an immediate impact like she has, it’s impressive, to me, her teammates and coaches around the state. She’s going to be one of those kids who is versatile enough to help us win lots of events at state. We probably won’t know where to put her till the end of the season.”
Wolsky (26.63) held second in the 50-yard freestyle. Peatross (1:05.51) took her victory in the 100-yard butterfly. Brugman (58.33) placed first in the 100-yard freestyle, followed by Ava Williamson (59.65), who placed third.
Bella Price (245.95) placed first in the 1-meter dive. Ella Kesler (214.10) took third and Haley Conklin (207.50) finished in fourth.
“Diving continues to be an event that we score highly in,” Jensen said. “Each meet, they have an opportunity to compete. They each get better and better. Individually they push each other to try new dives and up their difficulty.”
Jensen finished with a positive outlook on developing her team and their skills.
“We have some work to do but it’s nice to be able to compete, see where our strengths continue to be and where we need some work still,” she said.
The Majettes will be competing at 5 p.m. on Friday in Mandan.
