Lynden’s girls’ swim team let nerves get to them in a 115-55 loss to Anacortes on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at Lynden YMCA.
“That was the first meet,” Lynden coach Linda Bode said in a phone interview. “We have to settle down, get the nerves out. We have a lot of new girls and Anacortes came in rearing to go.”
Gadyn Elias was Lynden’s lone winner, as her 29.06-second 50 freestyle gave her the victory.
“Gadyn Elias swam fairly well today, as well as Shelby Deward,” Bode said. “They had good swims.”
