Members of the VSU Girls Swim Team competed at State this past weekend in Marshalltown.

Arabella Shepard, Geordyn Webster, Clarissa Carolan & Lexi Goodell swam in the 200 Medley Relay event, finishing in 29th place. Arabella also swam in the 100 Butterfly (6th place overall) and the 100 Backstroke (13th place overall).

Arabella Shepard was 6th in the 100 butterfly.

“We had a great experience – a great weekend all around,” says Coach Ashley Hesson. “We ended up 27th of 40 teams in the team standings; not bad for only having 4 girls competing. (Nine teams didn’t score points at all.)”

Before going to State, the girls participated in the tradition of painting windows at Ehlinger’s Vinton Express and dinner at McDonald’s.
