The Bronco girls’ swimming and diving team was defeated by Hibbing, 100-73, at a home meet on Thursday.

The team landed victories in five out of 11 events.

Head Coach Ashley Goff said, going forward, her goals for the team are to keep improving in their technique and to drop times.

“They’ve already been swimming a lot of personal bests which is really great to see this early on in the season,” she said.

Performances from Elly Nelson and Havyn Pelland stood out during Thursday’s meet.

“Elly Nelson swam great. Havyn’s performance stood out as well. She dropped another second in the fly and came in first, and she broke a minute in her 100 freestyle. She is swimming amazing times and is continuously improving,” Coach Goff said of the two swimmers.

The Broncos will next compete at Eveleth-Gilbert at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 5, and they will next appear at home on Sept. 19 at 4:30 p.m. against Mesabi East.
