The 2008 season opened for the Detroit Lakes girls' swimming and diving team with a "fun" home Pentathlon meet Monday inside the DL Cultural and Community Center.

Seven different teams competed in the meet, which consisted of five open events in which coaches could insert as many swimmers as they wanted.

The events were the 100-yard individual medley, 50 freestyle, 50 butterfly, 50 breaststroke and the 50 backstroke.

"It's a good first meet in which some of the younger swimmers can get their first taste of competition and the older ones can shake some of the rust off," said DL head coach Carol McCarthy. "They can work on their starts and turns, which are the two things which are affected the most (by rust)."

The highest finisher for the Lakers was Paige Raaf in the 50 breaststroke, with a fifth-place mark and a time of 36.50. There were over 120 swimmers taking part in every event.

Raaf also placed 12th in the 100 IM with a 1:14.52, while Andi Weiss was seventh in the 50 freestyle with a 28.41 and 18th in the 50 backstroke with a 34.45.

Libby Larson was the first Laker to place in the 50 butterfly with a time of 32.47.

The Lakers will be in Bemidji Saturday, Sept. 6, for a 10 a.m. start.
