Sophomore Lindsey Blommers recently swam in the Iowa State Swimming Meet in Marshalltown. Blommers swam in two events, the 100 breaststroke and the 50 breaststroke in the 200 medley relay. She did not qualify for the state meet as a freshman, so this year she was thrilled to get to compete.
“I was happy to swim against girls who had been swimming around the same times as me,” said Blommers.
She was actually seeded first, and ended up finishing fifth.
“I am very happy with my performance even though it wasn’t my best time (1:04.61); it was still an amazing time for me (1:05.70).
