Jays qualify for finals
Annie Hart and Paige Peterson will have a busy day in Grand Forks today.
Hart will swim in the ‘A’ finals of both the 100 backstroke and 50 free. Hart posted the fourth-best time in the 100 backstroke in the prelims on Friday, touching in 59.23 seconds.
In the 50 free, Hart’s 25.25 was the seventh-quickest. Peterson’s personal-best time of 25.81 ranked her 14th.
In the 100 free, Peterson, a senior, secured the final spot in the ‘B’ final, getting to the line in 57.40.
LeMae Turk will swim in the ‘B’ final of the 100 butterfly. The freshman posted a time of 57.40. She’s an alternate in the 200 individual medley, coming in 18th (2:23.07).
The Blue Jays’ best chance in the relays will likely come in the 200 medley as Hart, Taylor Bradley, Turk and Peterson are seeded seventh.
