The BNF (Beatrice, Norris, Fairbury), swim team competed in the Beatrice Invitational on Saturday, Dec. 1st.  The team competed against three other teams, two of which are teams in the River Cities Conference. This gives the team some ideas on who they will be competing against multiple times throughout the season. In the girls' division, the team finished in second place behind Lincoln Pius X.  The boys finished in third place. We had many finishers in the top 3 for the day. This is very encouraging that we continue to drop time and have more swimmers qualify for the state meet. Seniors, Mikasa Lierman, and Colton Starck had a great meet, dropping time and qualifying for state with secondary times.   Sophomores, Crystal Craft, Maya Moran, and Mikwena Lierman also performed well and continue to improve with state qualifying times.

Having the depth we do, with the number of swimmers on the team, we are able to move people around to score some points for the team, in events that some of them may not swim often.  We were very impressed with the team's support of one another throughout the meet. Having 3 high schools, we always consider ourselves one team…. We are not a Beatrice team, a Norris team or a Fairbury Team---- We are the BNF Swim team  ( 3 schools -1 Team)! Everyone cheers and encourages one another. This I believe contributes to our 35 personal best performances in this meet.

Next action for the team will be Thursday, Dec. 6th with a home dual against Ralston/Gross, at the Beatrice YMCA.  The meet begins at 4:00, with diving, and swimming will follow diving.
