TIPTON — Libby Hess won a pair of events, but those were the only firsts Clinton recorded Tuesday night as Tipton opened the girls swimming season with a 104-64 win against the River Queens.

Hess won the 200-yard individual medley in 2 minutes, 26.92 seconds, and the 100 butterfly in 1:08.93. There is no diving at the Tipton pool, shutting out the River Queens in an event that coach June Wilden says should be good for scoring points.
