The Rogers Girls Swim & Dive team wrapped up a very busy week with a strong showing at the 8AA True Team section meet held at St. Cloud Tech High School. The girls started the week with 2 losses on the road against 2 of the top teams in the conference – Andover and Blaine – but finished with excellent times and finishes to earn 4th place at True Team. Rogers has a very small team in comparison to the rest of the 8AA section, and almost the entire roster is needed at an event like True Team where the scoring is structured to highlight the depth of your team. Rogers’ small team of 30 swimmers placed higher than other teams double their size.
The Lady Royals host Coon Rapids on Tuesday in their final home and conference dual meet. The team will be celebrating their 5 seniors that night.
