Cambridge-Isanti girls take it to Chisago Lakes in the pool
by JEFF NORTON


The Chisago Lakes Wildcat swimming and diving team was hoping to get a little bit better results against Cambridge-Isanti after they had opened with a tough test against Becker, but they struggled early, and it was too big of a hole to climb out of on Thursday, September 16 at the Bluejacket pool.

Much like the first meet, CL’s opponent used some fast early times to build a sizeable lead. Cambridge-Isanti went first and third in the opening medley relay, giving them an early 10-4 lead. It grew to eight when they went first and third in the 200 freestyle. Lydia LaFean was CL’s top finisher in that event in second place.

By the end of the 50 yard freestyle, C-I’s lead had ballooned to 18 despite Sophie Janzig winning the sprint event. The senior came in first with a time of 28.08, but the Jackets took the next three spots to still outscore CL.

Claudia Stipe and Hattie Opdahl got the ‘Cats a bit back on track with a one-two finish in the one meter diving, and Sylvia Struve had a nice varsity debut in the event, coming in fifth place.

Joely Peterson kept the winning streak alive with a top finish in the 100 butterfly in 1:14.49. Again, the problem was the Bluejackets claimed to next three spots and still stretched their lead.

The Wildcats trimmed the lead all the way down to 12 after finishing first and third in the 200 free relay, but that’s as close as they would get as Cambridge-Isanti dominated the last three events. The winning free relay team was made up of Emily Fiorella, Haley Overgaard, LaFean and Janzig.

“We had some great swims  on the night — Haley Overgaard in the 100 freestyle, and Joely Peterson in the 100 fly - both personal bests and both placed well,” Head Coach Ellen Heath said. “Sophie Janzig was a great competitor winning the 50 free and Lydia LaFean continues to drop times and compete well for us.

“Our freestyle relays did well even missing a key swimmer.  We lack depth in the strokes and it so hard to recover from that.  Our top swimmer usually places well, but the other two struggle to score team points,” Heath continued.
“The divers did very well too.  Emma Wakefield is out with an injury and Sylvia Struve has stepped up in practice.  For a first year diver, she is growing by leaps and bounds.  She scored 20 points higher as a varsity diver in Cambridge than she did as JV diver in Becker.”
