Bison swim past Jackets in M-8 meet

Buffalo took control early and swam away with a 100-81 Mississippi 8 dual meet win at Cambridge-Isanti Sept. 19. The Bluejackets are now 2-1 in conference duals and 2-2 overall this season.

A big highlight for the Bluejackets came off the diving board where Taylor Weeks and Maria Leibel battled for the top two spots. Weeks snuck past her teammate by the slim score of 198.7-198.3.

After the Bison swept the top two spots in the first four individual swimming events, C-I’s Nicole Peterson worked for a 2nd-place in the 100 Freestyle, finishing at 1:00.5. Also placing 2nd in individual events for the Jackets were Kenzie Boysen in the 500 Free (6:10.0) and Paige Thomas in the 100 Breaststroke (1:19.6). The Jackets also posted 2nds in both the Medley and 200 Free relays.
