RAYTOWN -- The Marshall girls' swim team had four entries medal to collect 22 points for 13th place Friday in the Raytown Invitational.

Both of the Lady Owls' individual medals were won by senior Kameron Godsey, competing in back-to-back races. She finished seventh in the 100-yard backstroke (1:09.80), then came in 12th in the 100 breaststroke (1:19.86).

Godsey also swam the opening leg of Marshall's eighth-place 200-yard medley relay (2:13.52) ahead of freshman Lauren Nichols, sophomore Emily Raines and senior Kirby Brayman.

The Lady Owls also scored by coming in 11th in the 200 freestyle relay (1:59.55) behind the quarter of Brayman, Raines, Nichols and senior Amber Lonaker.

In fields which routinely exceeded 60 entries, Marshall did well in several other events. Raines was 15th in the 200 free (2:20.69) and 19th in the 50 free (28.80 seconds), in which Nichols and Brayman tied for 23rd place (29.32).

Lonaker was 17th in the 100 butterfly (1:15.97), Nichols 21st in the 100 breast (1:25.35) and Brayman came in 23rd in the 100 free (1:07.10).

The Lady Owls had five personal records broken: by sophomore Tyra Harper in the 200 free (3:18.01), junior Madison Gaba in the 100 fly (1:29.85), sophomore Kellen Renard (1:12.78) and senior Jana Lappin (1:23.10) in the 100 free, and freshman Olivia Kays in the 100 back (1:39.20).
