In her first high school meet, it seemed as if she was ready to swim circles around everyone.
She proved that she had the endurance to do it.
Sophomore Ellie Beagle swam in her first high school swim meet on Thursday and was able to come away with four victories.
“The girls did a great job,” head coach Deb Danner said after the meet. “Ellie Beagle, a first-year sophomore, had a really good showing in her distance events, taking first place in both the 200 freestyle and the 500 freestyle. She also helped the 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay to a couple of wins.”
Carroll was able to gain several wins, but Lewis Central won the meet 85-84.
