HAMILTON –The Greater Muskegon co-op swim team earned a fifth-place finish in the OK Rainbow Conference meet on Saturday.

The Turtles swam to a score of 253, just behind Spring Lake in fourth with 281.

Over two days, the Turtles posted 38 personal record swims and more than 50 season-best times. The Turtles also had three All-Conference swimmers, two MHSAA Division 1 state cuts and several top-16 swims and dives.

“I am so proud of these young ladies for the way they stuck together, pushed each other, and cheered each other on,” said Coach Mick Homan. “I also was very happy with the way we battled to the end in every race. They truly left it all in the pool this weekend and can hold their heads high for a job well done.”

All-Conference swimmer Delaney Buckner led the Turtles as the champion in both the 100 fly (59.27) and 100 back (59.77). 

Robyn Hunt made the state cut in the 100 fly (1:05.44) and 100 free (58.19), while Sydney Sytsema made the cut in the 50 free (25.99) and 100 free (58.19).

The 200-medley relay team of Naomi Huttenga, Buckner, Hunt and Sytsema earned a second-place finish with a season-best time of 1:56.25.

Sytsema, Huttenga, Hunt and Buckner also had a season-best time with a fourth-place spot in the 200-free relay with a time of 1:45. 95.

The Turtles will travel to Holland for the “Last Chance Meet” on Tuesday.
