The 2013 season officially started for the Detroit Lakes girls’ swimming and diving team, as they hosted the Laker Pentathlon in the BTD Aquatics Center Monday.

The Lakers were able to gauge themselves against seven Section 8-1A teams during the event, which consisted of swimmers competing in five individual events, as the top 20 in each race scored team points.

The Lakers had four swimmers finish in the top 20 for cumulative individual points, with junior Grace Livermore taking third overall.

Seventh grader Syd Gulon also had a nice varsity debut in eighth place, while freshman Clara Livermore tied for 15th and senior Maddy Schiller was tied for 18th.

Grace Livermore had some top finishes, after taking second in the 50-yard backstroke with a mark of 31.02 and third in both the 50 breaststroke (35.06) and the 100 individual medley (1:06.84).

Gulon was DL’s top finisher in the 50 freestyle with a fifth-place finish at 27.20.

The dual portion of the season kicks off Thursday, Sept. 5 in Staples-Motley, starting at 6 p.m.
