Despite losing to the Panthers 100-84, the Lakers posted some solid times, as they start down the homestretch of the regular season.

"It was a good meet, (with) good intensity that produced some good times," said DL head coach Carol McCarthy. "The seniors had a great meet."

The 200-medley relay team kicked off the meet with its best time of the season, with the foursome of Ashtin Spies, Melissa Paakh, Miranda Olson and Andrea Weiss flirting with a sub-two minute mark at 2:00.84.

The 400 freestyle relay squad also had their fastest time of the season at 3:55.79.

The team includes Spies, Paakh, Weiss and Libby Larson.

The senior Larson also sparkled in the 500 and 200 freestyle events, winning both with times of 5:33.65 and 2:07.73, respectively.

"Andrea Weiss got into a good sprint groove in the 50 freestyle (26.32 for first) and continued through to the 400 freestyle relay," McCarthy said. "Ashtin Spies wasn't 100-percent physically, but was able to produce some really strong swims."

Kyley Foster also is coming along nicely in diving, winning the event with a score of 200.35.

Paakh also continued to shine in the e200 individual medley (2:17.94) and 100 butterfly (1:00.47), while the underclassmen trio of Morgan Nodsle, Katie Arens and Jennifer Bellware improved greatly.

"We are working to improve on the breaststroke and the 200 freestyle relay events, but there's lots of potential with those events which we'll tap over the course of time," McCarthy added.

The Lakers will travel to Bemidji Tuesday for a 6 p.m. start.

The Lakers also competed in Thief River Falls Tuesday, falling to the Prowlers 89-78.

Winning events for DL included the 200 medley and 400 freestyle relay teams, Olson in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly, Spies in the 200 IM and Paakh in the 500 freestyle
