Thief River Falls senior Annika Dalager swam to a second place finish in the 50-yard freestyle final Saturday at the Section 8A meet in Grand Rapids to punch her ticket to this weekend’s state swim meet in Minneapolis.

Dalager added a third place finish in the 100 backstroke. Joining her with top-eight section finishes were Kendal Rantanen, fifth in the 100 freestyle and eighth place in the 50 freestyle; Maren Espe, eighth in the 100 breaststroke. “I am so proud of everything that the girls accomplished at the meet this past weekend,” said Head Coach Danielle Spiten.

“We had three girls place in the top eight and all 3 of our relays made top 8. Our most notable finisher was Annika Dalager in the 50 freestyle. She got second place at the meet, giving her a ticket to the state swim meet. She also broke a long standing Chelsea Haviland school record with a time of 25.01.”

Prowler relay finishes included a fourth place showing by the medley relay team of Dalager, Espe, Molly Halsa and Rantanen. The 200 freestyle relay team of Rantanen, Mack, Espe and Dalager swam to a sixth place finish; and the 400 freestyle relay team of Ava Budish, Brianna Berg, Halsa and Mack finished eighth.

“The whole team worked incredibly hard all season and we couldn’t have asked for a better end to the season,” Spiten said.
