Crookston wraps up regular season with loss to Prowlers, awaits section meet
The Crookston girls' swimming team wrapped up its regular season with a home dual against Thief River Falls Tuesday evening.
The Prowlers won, 94-50, which for the Pirates was an improvement on the last time the two teams swam against each other — a 116-49 defeat for Crookston on Oct. 1.
Madison Hoiland led the Pirate pack with two first-place finishes. The junior was first to the wall in the 50-meter freestyle, with a time of 31.35, and in the 100-meter breaststroke, posting a 1:29.59.
Sophomore Mackenzie Aamoth was solid in her two events — the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke — finishing second in both. Junior Claire Oman placed second in the 200-meter individual medley.
Crookston's lone senior, Victoria Proulx, marked her final home meet by placing fifth in both the 50 free and 100 free.
UP NEXT: The Pirates have one meet remaining: the Section 8A Championships in Warroad on Saturday, Oct. 24.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Section 8A has split up its 10 teams between three different host sites — Bemidji, Detroit Lakes and Warroad — for the championships. Competing in Warroad, along with the Pirates and Warriors, will be Thief River Falls.
