Short-handed Bulldog swimmers fall to Keokuk

KEOKUK — A late-season flu bug caused the Ottumwa girls swimming team to adjust their lineup with one of their top swimmers not able to make the trip to Keokuk. The Bulldogs competed, but could not overcome the Purple Chiefs as Ottumwa fell, 115-61, with Maranda Rupalo out of the lineup.

With Maranda out, Marissa Rupalo stepped up with one of her best nights. Rupalo finished second in a pair of different events, swimming individually to a runner-up finish in the 100 butterfly in a time of 1:10.06, the 100 backstroke in 1:12.94 and joining Claire Carlson, Caroline Carlson and Danielle Noe in the Bulldogs’ second-place 400 free relay team.

“Marissa had a strong night with season bests in two of those events,” Ottumwa head swimming coach Steph Mishler said. “This was a great opportunity this week to compete against some of the best individuals in the state.”

Ottumwa will next swim next Thursday night in the CIML Metro 7 Conference Meet in Des Moines.
