Swimmers advance to STATE!
The Laker Swimming and Diving Team is continuing their push in the State series with lights out performances from Regionals last Saturday. The Lakers will send four swimmers and two divers to the State Meet in Stuart on Friday and hope to cap off their record-setting season in Laker fashion. At Regionals, both divers (Ben Blizzard and Nicole Lerner) won individually, and Gabrielle Puryear-Lynch won the 200 IM (setting a new school record) and claimed 2nd in the 100 fly. Lyndsey Huizenga won the 50 free and claimed 2nd in the 100 Free. And, Marcela Scaramuzza placed 4th in the 100 Free and 4th in the 100 breast-stroke. In addition to the individual swims, both the Girls 200 Medley and Free relays will swim at the State Meet and are hoping to make the top 8. Let’s Go, Lakers!
