Northern Lights YMCA team motivated by Door County pool

Youth Swimming

IRON MOUNTAIN — Five Northern Lights YMCA swimmers from Dickinson County traveled to Sturgeon Bay for the Door County YMCA Hawaiian Invite.

“Traveling to different pools gives a different atmosphere and sometimes a boast in one’s motivation to do their best,” said a NLY team spokesman, noting Door County’s pool is eight lanes in a large open area.

Mackenzie Gilroy, Myah Gilroy, Petra Grubb and Margot McRoberts also represented the Dickinson County branch at the swim meet.

Gilroy swam a 100 IM for the first time.

“The other girls were able to improve their times with the different pool and competition,” spokesman said. “Achieving a time under 27 seconds is a thrill for anyone in the 50 yard freestyle. Adelaide accomplished this at the Door County meet.”
