The Sierra College women's swim team got its season started off in the right direction.
The Lady Wolverines had their first swim and dive meet last weekend in Santa Rosa at the NorCal Relay Meet and clinched their first big win against some of the toughest teams in the state. Sierra beat out eight schools for first place.
Among the winning relays were the 400 freestyle relay with sophomores Julie Maginnis, Jessica Bonner, Dana Shepherd, and Michelle Berrios; the 150 butterfly relay with Bonner, Elise Wenger, and Maginnis and the 400 medley relay with Bonner, Berrios, Maginnis and Dana Shepherd.
The Lady Wolverine divers also received first place on both the one-meter and three-meter diving event, helping the team surpass nemesis Santa Rosa and win the NorCal Relay title.
