Joe LeBlanc photo MANISTIQUE – It’s a record breaking year for Manistique’s Allison Halpin. The sophomore broke the school record in the 100-yard freestyle for the second time this season.

Halpin originally set the new time in Kingsford at 1:01.71. She broke that record last week when Manistique hosted Sault Ste. Marie and Rudyard. Halpin set the new mark at 1:01.59.

Halpin also took first in the 50 freestyle. It was originally her goal to break that record at the meet. The 50 freestyle record is currently held by Chloe Forstner, who set it at 27.06 in 2001.

Following suite on the diving board, Robert Ayotte also placed first. The addition of Ayotte to the board has added some very valuable points for the team.

Emerald senior Ryan Ramey also took first in the 50 freestyle with a time of 29.50.

Over all, both Emerald teams took third in the triangular meet. The boys posted 74 to the girls 77.

The Emeralds will travel to the Sault to compete against both teams again on Feb. 4.
