Two members of the Fergus Falls Flyers summer swim team participated in the Minnesota State C Meet over the weekend at the Butler Pool on the campus of St. Catherines in St. Paul.  Matthew Tuel raced in seven events and Lucas Tuel was entered in two events.

Matthew, who is nine years old, swam in the 9 and 10 year old division and placed in the top eight in two events.  He finished fifth in the 100 breaststroke (2:04.10) with his best time and a time drop of almost five seconds, and was sixth in the 50 backstroke (:50.82) with his best time and a time drop of 2.5 seconds.  Matthew also swam best times in the 50 butterfly (:59.86), finishing tenth with a time drop of 8 seconds, and the 50 freestyle (:43.56), also placing tenth.

Lucas, a six year old, swam in the 8 and under division and was tenth in both the 50 freestyle (1:05.85) and 50 backstroke (1:15.83).  His time in the 50 freestyle was his best time and was a time drop of over five seconds.

Next week the Flyers will have three participants in the Minnesota State A-B Meet at Mankato.  Aisling Cox will swim in the 11 and 12 year old 100 backstroke competition, Brinn Donais in the 15-16 year old 50 freestyle, Christian Reed in the 11-12 year old division 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke, and Matthew Tuel in the 9-10 year old division 100 freestyle.
