Despite the COVID- 19 restrictions on this year’s OHS Girls Swim And Dive it did not stop Logan Norrid, a sophomore at OHS from having a great season. Norrid qualified for her third year at the Minnesota State Girls Swim and Dive tournament. However, with Covid-19, that will not be taking place.

Norrid succeeded in breaking school swim records in the 100 meter breaststroke, the 200 and 500 freestyle. Norrid said, “Overall, considering the fact that there was covid, I feel like I did very well. There were some new things we had to adjust to.” Virtual meets were a huge adjustment for girls swim and dive. As they do not get to see their competition swimming next to them. She would have competed in the 100-meter butterfly and the 100-meter breaststroke, which are the same event she competed in at sections. Norrid said,“Personally, I am a little disappointed about not being able to compete at state this year.

The MSHSL merged the results from everyone’s section meet, to do a mock state meet. Norrid would have placed 10 in the 100 butterfly and 14 in the 100 breastroke based on her times from sections. Coach Isaiah Fuller said, “Logan had a great year, we were able to swim her in a couple of different spots throughout the season where she was able to get three more school records.”
