The swimmers faced Lapeer East, which is an old Flint Metro League rival, and won 110 - 75.
Coach Jacqueline Rank was pleased with the victory.
"We had some good swims with some great competition. We still need to overcome some illnesses and some injuries. We don't have much of the season left and it will be over before we know it," Rank said.
The team also competed in the Oakland County meet and finished 17th.
Haley Kornburger took a fifth place finish in the 50 freestyle and a 7th place finish in the 100 butterfly.
