The Elkader Strawberry Point (ESP) swim team finished sixth overall July 9 at the all-day Northeast Iowa Conference swim meet in Waukon. The nine member teams took part.
Decorah won with 628 points followed by Cresco (492), host Waukon (421), Calmar (402) and West Union with 370.
ESP finished in sixth with 300 points, ahead of Manchester (293), Sumner (266) and Monona/Postville with 222.
Larae Engelhardt, who coaches the Elkader side of the team, was pleased with the finish.
“Six out of nine. Since we don’t have a lot of boys, that’s pretty good!” said Engelhardt.
Half the events at a swim meet are swum by boys. Although ESP is blessed with some talented boys, they are short of numbers and forfeit events and points because they have no entry.
