Muskego's girls swimming and diving team took 13th place at the WIAA Division 1 swimming meet held Nov. 12 at the University of Wisconsin Natatorium in Madison.

Senior Lauren Stigler earned medals in the 100-yard breaststroke and in the 100 butterfly, while the Warriors also medaled in the 200 medley relay.

Muskego earned 64 team points to come in eight points ahead of 14th-place DePere and four points behind 12th-place Homestead.

Stigler, the defending champion in the 100 butterfly, swam a faster race than she did at the 2015 state meet, but it wasn't enough to beat sophomore Grace Bennin of Verona/Mt. Horeb. Bennin won the title in 1:02.13, while Stigler easily finished second in 1:02.40.

The University of North Dakota signee medaled in the 100 butterfly, taking sixth with a time of 56.81.
