It was a day of improvement for the Decorah girls swim team.
After opening the season last Thursday, the aqua Vikings took the pool at Dubuque Senior in the Ram Relays Saturday
Cedar Falls was the champion with 102 points. Decorah finished fourth with 61 points, just four away from Senior in third.
This invite is different from others in that all events are conducted as relays. Each school also has a chance to have up to four relays compete in every event, with a varsity, varsity exhibition, freshmen/sophomore and freshmen/sophomore exhibition.
Decorah’s best varsity finish came in the 200 medley relay and 1-meter diving competition. In the medley, Madelyn Jermier, Carina Yee, Micala Folkedahl and Katelyn Yee combined to finish in 2:02.59 to earn the silver medal. Bettendorf took first in the event in 2:00.81, just edging the Vikings.
In the diving competition, Decorah scored 308.15 points to earn second behind Cedar Falls.
