Meet Highlights: At Conference, we are reminded just how tough our competition is. We are up against larger/combined schools and some of the best swimmers in the state. BUT we stay focused on our improvement and goals. And we have A LOT to be proud of. The girls are working harder and improving at each meet. Their performance at Conference was outstanding with PR’s in almost 50% of our swims. We had 28 PR’s at JV Conference and 20 PR’s at Varity Conference. The top scorers at JV Conference was Stephanie Schlessinger (2nd place, 17 points). Sophomores Emmalee Schmutzler and Shannon McConahy also scored in their individual events (which is tough to do in our conference!). They each scored 2 points for the team. At Varsity Conference, our top scorer was Josie Tetzlaff who placed 11th in the 100 Fly (6 points). Congratulations to the Swimmers of the Meet Shannon McConahy (JV Conference) and Avery Phillips (JV Conference) and Freshman Maddi Klein (Varsity Conference)!
