STOUGHTON (AP) — Stoughton High School is making counselors available this week to help students cope with the loss of two classmates whose bodies were recovered from a Dane County lake Friday, June 8th.

Classes have ended for the school year, but Stoughton High administrators say the school will be open to any student needing to talk.

The bodies of the 16-year-old girls were found Friday near the shore of Lake Kegonsa, near where they had left their cellphones, purses and shoes before going for a swim on Thursday afternoon.

Dane County sheriff’s officials say Emma Mauer and Sydnie Kwiatkowski appeared to have drowned accidentally and that there were no indications of foul play.

Family members and friends gathered on shore Friday as authorities searched the lake and the area for the girls.
