The 200-yard freestyle relay team of senior Kate Westphal, junior Kinsey Singerhouse, junior Shannon Mason and Greenwood finished ninth in their race, timing in at 1:43.54 to pick up four-tenths of a second from their seed time from sectionals. Rhinelander’s Noelle St. Pierre, Abi Winnicki, Karis Francis and Malia Francis won the race in 1:38.03 while the Lakeland Union team of Brie Wescott, Mariah Angove, Naomi Hamerla and Rylee Ahlborn was second in 1:38.79.
