It’s been a busy few days for the Newton High School girls’ swimming team.

The Railers have competed in four meets since the season began April 2.

Newton concluded that run Tuesday by hosting the 13-team Newton Invitational at the NHS pool.

Andover won the team title with 236 points, followed by Derby at 225, McPherson at 206 and Salina Central at 137. Newton was sixth with 108 points.

“They swam as well as they could,” Newton coach Kim Powell said. “This was their third meet in six days. The girls are tired. The past couple of meets, girls swam in just one, two or three events. In this meet, the girls swam four. I was pretty happy with their races.

“Madi (Horton) swam well again. Libby Crawford had great races today. Elena Vanderweg did a great job today. Maryanne Ballinger, same thing a great job.”

Madison Horton took second in the 50-yard freestyle in 26.78 and second in the 100-yard backstroke in 1:06.78.

Lauren Anton took third in the 500-yard freestyle in 6:07.98 and fourth in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:29.71.

The team of Anton, Vanderweg, Crawford and Horton took third in the 400-yard freestyle relay in 4:18.63.

The team of Horton, Crawford, Anton and Ballinger placed fifth in the 200-yard medley relay in 2:15.24.

Newton gets eight days off before resuming competition April 21 at the Salina South diving meet, followed by the Great Bend Invitational April 30.

“We get a little bit of a break to recoup and work on some things,” Powell said.
