The Mound Westonka/Holy Family swim team remained unbeaten in dual competition this season with a 120-63 win over Marshall Tuesday in Mound.
Mound Westonka - ranked fifth in Class A - and Holy Family will compete separately at the Section 3A meet (which Marshall will be at), but the two squads swim together for duals and invites during the regular season. Two solid teams in their own right, when they're together they make for a very formidable opponent.
"Going into this dual meet we knew it was going to be a tough meet," Marshall head coach Nicole Peterson said. "The girls, I think, were very focused and ready and worked very, very hard in the events that they swam.
"I was just really proud of them because they kept their heads up high even though the meet didn't go in our favor. It was a proud moment as a coach to know that they keep working even though things aren't necessarily going in their favor."
The Tigers had five wins on the day. Sophomore Ashley Dunn had two of them. She won both the 200-yard individual medley (2 minutes, 21.73 seconds) and the 500 freestyle (5:38.11).
"Ashley had a fantastic day. It was fun to watch her," Peterson said. "She cut time in both of her events and she just really worked it. She knew she was going to be competing against some tough kids and she gave it her all. She didn't hold back at all."
McKenzie Vermeire added wins for the Tigers in the 50 freestyle (26.10) and the 100 backstroke (1:03.60), while Kylie Vermeire took first in the 100 freestyle (56.27).
Marshall will be back in the pool Tuesday for a road dual against Morris Area.
