JEFFERSON — There were no better freshmen in the pool March 30 than Jefferson/Cambridge’s Jordyn Davis and Zoey Rank.

Davis won one individual event, while Rank captured two individual first-place finishes as the Jefferson/Cambridge girls swim team took third at a WIAA Division 1 sectional Tuesday at Jefferson High School.

The freshmen duo also helped the EagleJays to a first-place finish in the 200-yard medley relay. Jefferson/Cambridge finished third with 286 points, while McFarland won the sectional with 355 points. DeForest was the runner-up with 322 points.
