Keegan Everheart placed second and Maddy Biek placed third at the Muscatine Invitational Saturday. The meet wasn't a traditional swim meet an the 11 dives and six dives, which are dual meet dives, were the only two events. Even though six teams participated there were no team scores kept in the meet.
Muscatine swimming coach Judd Anderson said he thought both girls have performed better at different points of the season, but he noted they were competing against several state qualifiers in the meet.
The entire Muscatine swimming team will be back in action in its home pool Tuesday against Pleasant Valley, and it will play host to Iowa City West for the final regular season meet Oct. 17.
"Our season is rapidly coming to a close," Judd said. "Those are both very, very tough programs that are ranked quite high."
The Muskies have just over two weeks until the regional meet, and Judd is hoping to use that time to try some swimmers in different events to make sure "there wasn't something we missed."
"We'll give kids a chance to see what they can do in something different," Judd said. "We have a few spots we have to figure out that could maybe make a difference."
