Former teammates and District 10 swimming stars reunited in the Big Ten Conference on Friday when Mercyhurst Prep graduates Marie Georger and Rylee Klomp swam for rival universities.

Georger is a sophomore at Michigan, while Klomp is a freshman at Purdue. The No. 20 Boilermakers beat the No. 24 Wolverines 164.5-135.5 in West Lafayette, Ind.

Georger and Klomp were standouts for the Lakers and once made up half of a state championship relay team.

On Friday, Georger won the 200-yard backstroke in a time of  2 minutes, 0.78 seconds. She also placed fourth in the 100-yard backstroke (57.10) and 400 individual medley (4:26.56).

Klomp swam on the fourth-place 400 free relay and the fifth-place 200 medley relay.
