The Little Falls swimming and diving team dropped a pair of meets, one at home, another away.

The Flyers’ first meet was a 103.5-83.5 loss at Mora/Ogilvie, Sept. 26.

Ogilvie’s pool is in meters, which differs from most pools that the Flyers swim in, which are measured in yards.

Little Falls’ top finishers included: junior Layla Waltman, first in 200 IM, 2:55.98; junior Emma Gustafson, first in one meter diving, 177.15 and Waltman, first in butterfly, 1:22.51.

Sophomore Dani Schirmers came in second in one meter diving with a score of 174.3.

Ella Rausch, Rachel Josephson, Abby Noyes and Leah Josephson all had runner-up finishes.

The Flyers returned home for a meet against Alexandria, Tuesday.

Little Falls fell behind, 12-2, after the medley relay.

Rausch then won the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:08.73 to keep the Flyers within 12.

The closest of the races was in the 50 freestyle, where Flyers senior Rachel Josephson edged her Cardinals opponent by .09 with a 26.29 finish.

Gustafson again won diving with a score of 189.55 to draw the Flyers back to within 14.

Perhaps the Flyers’ best event, however, was the 100 freestyle, where Rachel Josephson came away with another close win, finishing in 57.03.

Rausch and Lindy Welinski finished third and fourth to garner 11 points for the Flyers.

Two freestyle relays were also winners for the Flyers. The 200 free relay team of Welinski, Waltman, Rausch and Rachel Josephson won with a time of 1:48.72, and the 400 relay team of Rausch, Leah Josephson, Waltman and Rachel Josephson won the 400 free relay with a time of 3:58.67.

Little Falls remains at home for a meet with conference rival, Albany, Thursday.
