“It was a good meet. We swam pretty well and had some good races,” said coach Kevin McGlashen.
Carman-Ainsworth/Flushing lost a SVL crossover meet at Saginaw Heritage last Thursday.
“They beat us pretty good. We weren’t at our best that night,” McGlashen said. “There were a couple little mistakes in the meet as far as placement and I think the girls got confused on some things. They did diving first. Nothing against Heritage. I’m not trying to make excuses. The meet ran a little different and they weren’t used to it and it kind of threw them off a little bit.”
