BSM girl’s swimming falls to a powerful Breck team

The BSM girls’ swim team lost their fifth consecutive meet of the season at home to the Breck Mustangs, 93-76 on Tuesday, September 30,. Only being down by six points at the break, Breck dominated the 100 yard backstroke and 100 yard breaststroke events to win the meet by a small margin. Claire Torgerson was a great asset for the Red Knights, winning both the 50 yard freestyle and 100 yard butterfly. BSM also came out on top in the 200 yard medley relay, with the team of junior Grace Hedin, sophomores Maria Satre, Claire Torgerson, and Madison Semler, but the Mustangs boasted a swimmer training for the junior olympics and dominated the other two relays en route to an important victory. With the loss, the Red Knights are 1-5 and have not won a meet since their first meet of the year on September 4. “All of us are actually very proud of how we’re doing, because we’re actually doing very well and getting personal best times, but we realize that we are in a new conference and it is more difficult for us because we are one of the smaller teams with a lot of bigger squads,” senior captain Meghan Ortizcazarin said.
