LITCHFIELD — The Litchfield girls swim team won its fourth dual meet of the season with a 55-46 win over St. Cloud Apollo on Saturday.

Litchfield took home victories in eight of the 12 events. Ellie Brown and Adeline Lundin both won two individual races and helped the 200-yard medley relay team to a first-place finish in 2 minutes, 1.14 seconds.

Brown won the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle with times of 26.89 and 1:00.01. Lundin took first place in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke with times of 2:30.25 and 1:05.47.

“We had a lot of great swims,” Litchfield head coach Tim Hroma said. “We did a great job as a team with a ton of girls having their best times.”

The Dragons return to the pool against Mound-Westonka/Holy Family at 6 p.m. Thursday at Litchfield High School.


“We look forward to all of our upcoming challenges and are counting down the days until true team sections,” Hroma said. “We are four-and-three in duals this season, matching our mark from the previous year.”
