Superior junior Kaitlin Heinen placed 22nd and 23rd, respectively, in the 500- and 200-freestyle events at Saturday’s Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 1 state girls swimming meet in Madison.
Grand Rapids senior Solveig Viren defended her titles, as expected, in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events to lead the Thunderhawks to the team title in the Section 7A girls swimming meet Saturday at Lincoln Park Middle School in Duluth.

Tuesday night’s swim audience at the Herb Drew Pool in Cloquet watched anxiously, as Grand Rapids topped Cloquet-Esko-Carlton 49-45 in a thrilling girls swimming dual that came down to the final race of the evening.
