HOLLAND – The Greater Muskegon co-op swimming team fell to state-ranked Holland Christian in an OK-Rainbow dual meet on Tuesday. 

The Turtles lost, 131-54.

“We swam with a lot of heart tonight despite the odds,” said Turtles coach Mick Homan. “I was very proud of how we focused on us rather than the state-ranked Maroons.”

Susie Van Baale was the top finished with a first-place spot in the 100 breast (1:17.75). Sydney Sytsema followed with a second place finish in the 100 back (1:10.95), while Eva Stout was second in the 100 fly (1:09.40).

Marilyn Gaston, Maria Eenigenburg, Stout and Sytsema came in second place in the 400 free relay (4:21.29). The 200-medley relay team of Sophia Zziwambazza, Van Baale, Millie Curow and Isabella DeJonge finished in third (2:11.92).

Also, Hollen Emmick earned a third-place finish in the dives with a score of 171.95.

“It was a good wake-up call that we needed to let us know what we need to work on before the next meet,” Homan said. “We will look to regroup and finish the season on a strong note.”

The Turtles (4-10, 1-5) will be at Ludington on Thursday.
