Five Sturgis swimmers turned in personal-best performances at Saturday’s Marshall Invitational to help the Trojans finish fourth overall.
Sophomore Sydney Strawser finished fifth in the 200-yard freestyle and fourth in the 500 free, clocking a career time in the latter. Junior Elizabeth York turned in a personal best in the 200 individual medley, freshman Anna Tetzloff did the same in diving en route to a sixth-place finish, sophomore Laura Falkenstein recorded a personal record in the 100 free and senior Amanda Camburn set a personal best in the 100 backstroke.
Other top-six performances included junior Anna Rueppel in the 100 free (sixth), freshman Kylie Trail in the 100 backstroke (fifth) and the quartet of Trail, Rueppel, Cleanna Crabill and Strawser (fourth) in the 200 free relay.
“The girls had some personal-best performances today and swam strong even though we were without several girls in the lineup today due to injuries and other events,” Trojans coach Laura Penner said.
