— Pat Grzenda felt relieved after her Lawrence High swimming team competed at and won the Olathe North Invitational here Saturday.

"It was great fun," Grzenda said. "I was kind of nervous about this meet. I didn't know what to expect. We'd been hearing stories about what's out there, but we knew all the time that we'd have to get out there and see for ourselves.

"The team really rose to the occasion and had a great team effort. Everybody but one person we took scored, and the one that didn't score got her best time. That's a great effort team-wise."

The Lions notched 216.5 points, edging Blue Valley (194) and Blue Springs, Mo., which tallied 161 points.

"Going one-two in diving is a great boost, particularly at an invitational meet like this," Grzenda said. "And winning one relay and getting second in another is great.

"All in all, it was a very pleasing performance. We have a little bit better idea now where we're at and what we're up against. It was a fun day."

LHS will travel to a Shawnee Mission West quadrangular Tuesday.
