Big Lake High School varsity swimmers and divers competed in sections at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School Friday afternoon and  Saturday (today), beginning at 3 p.m.
The Hornets, who have a 5-2 record, compete in Section 5A against teams from Milaca, Becker, Foley, Monticello, Princeton, Cloquet-Esko-Carleton, Ogilvie-Mora, Proctor-Hermantown, Zimmerman and Sauk Rapids-Rice.
The Hornets tied for second place in the Mississippi 8 Conference with Monticello and Buffalo. St. Michael Albertville are this year’s conference champions.
“The girls have all worked so hard and have achieved so many personal and team goals,” said Coach Brittany Gronewold. “I am so proud of all of their hard work and devotion this season.”
“They are excited to go for State at Sections on Saturday. They are truly remarkable individuals and it has been such a privilege coaching them,” she said.
Winners of the section meet will go on to compete at state Nov. 18-20 at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center in St. Paul.
