The Otters also earned two first place finishes in relay events. The team of FIsher, Reard, Summer Kalenberg and Ross took first in the 200 medley. Fisher, Caitlyn Colbeck, Reard and Ross also earned first in the 400 freestyle.
“We told the girls after the meet that there were more positives than negatives; a number of great races, a number of best times and we learned a lot about some new relay combinations,” head Otter swimming coach Tom Uvaas said.
The Otters are back in their home pool on Thursday when they compete against Moorhead and Detroit Lakes in a triangular. The meet begins at 6 p.m.
