REGIONAL— A good season for the Northeast Range/Ely girls swim team ended with a nice accolade, as the team was named the winner of a Gold Academic Award, an honor reserved for teams with a GPA between 3.75 and 4.00 for athletes in grades 10-12. The award was announced following competition in the Section 7A finals held Nov. 8-10.

NER/Ely posted several finishes in the top 15 in the sectional meet, including 11th place finishes in the 200 yard medley relay as well as the 200 yard freestyle relay. Morgan McClelland, Kelly Thompson, Lily Tedrick, and Abby Koivisto proved a strong combination in the medley, while Kayla Mellesmoen, Koivisto, Tedrick and Thompson claimed 11th place in the freestyle event.

Brooke Pasmick also finished 11th in the 100 yard backstroke.

In addition, Mellesmoen finished 14th in the 50 yard freestyle and the 100 freestyle events.

“We had a season with the team working hard on conditioning and improving technique,” said Head Coach Lynn Gulbrandson. “The girls improved all season and we had numerous lifetime best times in every meet,” she said.
