Girls Swimming and Diving:
The PA/Blake co-op participated in the Section 2A Championship Meet at Richfield on Friday, November 8. Congratulations to seniors Megan Rothberg and Angelina Hartley, sophomore Anna Heaney, and freshman Taylor Smith for advancing to Section Finals.
Coach Luke Johnson shared, “Angelina Hartley will advance to the MSHSL State today in the 200 free and 100 fly. We fought hard and showed great spirit. The future of our team is bright!”
Tournament information and results may be found here.
On Thursday, November 7, the team dropped the puck on their season as they took on the Armstrong/Cooper Wings at New Hope Ice Arena. Minnehaha United fell to the Wings by a score of 8-0.
Sophomore Ellie Wasserman had 43 saves in the game. For freshman Grace Petzold’s varsity debut, she played center. Senior Hannah Schommer and sophomore Ava Wasserman are on a line together, and Coach Dan Berthiaume is hoping they can generate offense like they did last season.
Coach Berthiaume said, “The girls have been working hard all week at practice and look to bounce back in the home opener against Albert Lea on Saturday, November 16, at Minnehaha Academy.”
