Austin swimmers still in search of first win

OWATONNA — The Austin High girls swimming and diving team is still in search of a dual meet win after Thursday night’s 94-84 loss to Owatonna.

The Austin Packers once again dominated in the diving competition, but that was the only event in which they placed first in this Big Nine Conference dual. Courtney Fleming was first in the diving, followed by Caroline Brown and Robyn O’Leary.

Austin (0-4, 0-2 Big Nine) returns to the Ellis pool on Tuesday night for a conference dual meet with Faribault.
