Lynden girls’ swimming falls to Archbishop Murphy 88-81

The Lynden girls’ swim team stayed with Archbishop Murphy, but ultimately suffered a 88-81 non-conference loss Thursday, Sept. 18, at the Lynden YMCA.

Jadyn Elias led Lynden with a win in the 50 freestyle, and she also swam a leg in the team’s winning 400 freestyle relay. Elias’ 50 free time was 29.22 seconds.

Teammates Annie Uribe, Demara Gerbrant and Shelby DeWaard joined Elias to win the 400 free relay in 4:34.74.

“Our kids are improving, and they are settling down and that’s a good thing,” Lynden swim coach Linda Bode said in a phone interview.

Lynden (0-2) travels to face Ferndale next to open conference play at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, at the Lynden YMCA.
