The Cloquet-Esko-Carlton girls swimming team enjoyed home meet victories over Northeast Range (Babbitt) on Sept. 19, 54-37, and Denfeld on Sept. 26, 52-42. For the Lumberjacks, the victories are important markers as the program continues to resurface under Coach Stacia Grayson.
While the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton swimmers were out-swum and outnumbered 52.5-39.5 by a much larger squad from Proctor-Hermantown Tuesday, there were some basic truths about the upcoming season on display.
Cloquet’s Sandra Bergquist went for a really long swim last week.
In fact, Bergquist placed third in the END-WET (Extreme North Dakota Watersports Endurance Test ), a 27-mile river swim in Grand Forks, N.D.
After being informed she and her 200-yard freestyle relay team had been disqualified in Saturday’s sectional swimming finals, a saddened Kayla Whipple could have easily neglected to race her best afterward.
