Bulldog swimmers finish fifth at Metro meet

DES MOINES — The Ottumwa girls swim team has been persevering all season long.

They continued to do so on Thursday night at the CIML Metro Conference meet held at Des Moines Roosevelt.

Ottumwa — missing two of its key swimmers in Maranda Rupalo and Megan Black — managed a fifth-place showing with a team total of 201.

“It was a good night. I can’t speak highly enough about the team,” said Ottumwa head coach Stephanie Carroll. “We had a great finish.”

Roosevelt ran away with the meet with a whopping total of 541 — winning seven events.

Ottumwa ended the meet with a second-place showing in the final event of the night — the 400 free relay. The Bulldog foursome of Caroline Carlson, Claire Carlson, Marissa Rupalo and Maren Melvold swam to a 4:25.62 clip.

Melvold, Ottumwa’s foreign-exchange student from Norway – finished seventh in the breaststroke (1:18.2) and eighth in the butterfly (1:12.83). Freshman Marissa Rupalo, who hails from Centerville, placed eighth in the backstroke (1:13.65) and ninth in the butterfly (1:13.35). OHS frosh Caroline Carlson swam to a eighth-place finish in 1:04.04 in the 100 freestyle.

Ottumwa competes at the regional meet in Johnston on Saturday, Oct. 29.
