Tommy McGinn, Staff Writer

In their last away meet of the season, the BSM girls’ swim team beat the Robbinsdale Cooper Hawks on Thursday, October 9 by a score of 98-71.  The Red Knights got off on the right foot by winning the 200 yard medley relay by merely a hundredth of a second with sophomores Maria Satre, Claire Torgerson, and Madison Semler, as well as junior Grace Hedin. Underclassmen talent stepped up in this meet, as eighth grader Ava Schieffert won the 50 yard freestyle. Junior Grace Hedin had a key performance late in the meet by winning the 100 yard backstroke. Although she was outtouched in the 100 yard freestyle, Torgerson showed versatility by winning the 200 yard individual medley.  The meet also saw former JV athletes taking their game to the next level, as sophomore Josie Ross swam her first varsity individual swim in her career.  With the win, the Red Knights have accomplished a winning record on the road but have yet to win a meet at home.  “If we keep the same adrenaline and fans’ spirit, I think we will be able to pull out a win at a home meet hopefully,” Ross said.
