Swim team loses to Hutch, places 6th at Prior Lake

The Montgomery-Lonsdale/New Prague swim team faced stiff competition last week when they matched talents with five other teams at the Prior Lake Invitational and in a dual meet at two-time defending state Class A champion Hutchinson.

Prior Lake Invitational

The M-L/NP team had a return trip to Prior Lake Saturday for the annual Prior Lake Invitational, after losing a dual meet to the Lakers in early September.

Coach Josh Franz said there were many strong teams at the competition, including the host Lakers, who went on to take first place in their home meet.

The Lakers had 352 points, followed by Mankato West (326), Simley (197),Watertown-Mayer/Delano (159), St. Peter (135) and MLNP (76)

Franz said the first year diving of Melanie Deutsch continued to be impressing as she led the way for the Redbirds to take fifth place.

He added that Jenna Baer is starting to show some improvement after a long illness.

“I hope that she will finally start to be her self again in the coming meets,” he said.

Also at the meet, Franny Zins has the best performance of the year in the 500-yard freestyle.

Tigers 91, Redbirds 69

The Redbirds faced off against traditionally strong Hutchinson. Their experience was felt with the Montgomery and New Prague team.

“The strong state champion swimmers were too much for the smaller Redbirds swimming and diving team to over come,” said Franz.

On a positive note, Deutsch is on a hot streak, according to Franz as the first-year diver won yet another diving competition.
