Shelby Bratton won two individual events and contributed to two relay victories as the Bryant Lady Hornets gathered first-place finishes in eight events in a dual meet against the Lady Rams of Hot Springs Lakeside on Thursday at the Bishop Park Aquatic Center.
But the Lady Hornets were limited to just 11 athletes for the meet and, with greater depth, Lakeside took team honors with 495 points to Bryant’ 448.
Bryant is scheduled to complete the regular season on Tuesday, Feb. 9, with a dual meet with Bauxite.

They finished in 2;09.53. In the 200 free relay, it was Bratton, Aidan Halladay, Alyssa Addison and Sharp winning in 1:58.28.
