Coach Walls says: “We’re rebuilding. Madeline is a state champion as a freshman. She didn’t win the last two years and that’s her personal goal this year. Depth is going to be an issue.”

GF Red River

Coach: Bryan Walls.

2021 finish: 16th place at state.

Key returners: Soph. Joely Anderson (15th at state in 200 freestyle); soph. Olivia Whitney (13th at state in 100 backstroke); soph. Grace Fish.

Top newcomers: Fr. Branwen Loeffler; seventh-grader Abigail Behm.

Coach Walls says: “We’re hoping for top-eight finishes at state (for Anderson and Whitney) but I’d like to see top five. Anderson could surprise some people in the backstroke. A top-three podium finish would be exciting.”
