Published 10:14am Friday, October 12, 2012

The Fergus Falls Otters closed out their regular season at home as they celebrated senior night with a 102-82 victory over the Rocori Spartans.

“Congratulations to Elise Anderson, Rachel Appert, Anne Childs and Emily Hexum,” Otter coach Tom Uvaas said. “These young ladies have been swimming since early youth and have probably covered between 4 to 6 million yards in training. They have modeled excellence for our youth and we congratulate them on this victory.”

Appert finished strong with a win in the diving event with a score of 209.55 in six dives.

The rest of the seniors also posted wins in different events.

Anderson was a member of the winning 200 freestyle relay team (1:47.87), Childs swam to a key second place finish in the 100 butterfly with her best time of 1:09.64 and Hexum was a member of the winning 200 medley relay team (2:00.50).

The Otters will now prepare for the True Team meet at Warroad Saturday.
