The Little Falls swimming and diving team improved to 2-0 on the season after a 94-83 win over Ogilvie/Mora (OM) at Ogilvie, Sept. 3.

New Flyers head coach Sarah Filippi was proud of her team, and noted that times may be strange, as the Ogilvie pool is a meter pool, which tends to make the times slower than they would be in a yard pool.

Little Falls fell behind early on, as OM captured the top spot in the first two events.

Senior Layla Waltman stepped up for the Flyers in the 200 individual medley, earning six points with a win and a time of 2:55.52 more than 10 seconds faster than teammate Leah Josephson, who finished second.

Little Falls never trailed from then on, as Ella Rausch earned the win in the 50 freestyle (30.38), and Grace Grimsley and Emma Gustafson finished one-two in varsity diving.

Lindy Welinski and Waltman finished first and second in the 100 butterfly, and Rausch again came in first in the 100 freestyle (1:06.82) to really keep the Flyers ahead.

Little Falls then closed out the meet in exhibitions, earning top finishes in the 200 free relay, the top three spots in the 100 backstroke (Josephson, Allyson Kahler and Berit Gustafson).

The Flyers also finished first in the final event, the 400 free relay, as the team of Waltman, Monica Czech, Kahler and Berit Gustafson finished in 4:43.83.
