Litchfield Dragons logo

Litchfield’s girls swimming team is set for the section finals with five entries moving on from prelims Thursday night.

Prelims are all about setting yourself up for a good showing in the finals. The Dragons have three of their four entries particpating in the championship heats, including two Litchfield divers, Emma Brown and Cecilia Toenjes making it to the championship.

None of the swimmers times had a state qualifying time, so they will hope to cut time if they want to travel Minneapolis next week.

The Dragons will have their A team compete in the consolation heat of the 200 yard freestyle relay. The other relay team for the 200 yard medley will be competing in the championship heat. Margaret Boerema is the lone Dragon individual swimmer as she will swim in the 100 yard backstroke championship heat.

The finals will give the teams and girls one last chance to cut their times and qualify for state, but the window is closing fast. The finals start at 1 p.m. Saturday in Willmar, and hopefully send some girls to state.
