Conference Meet

Conference Highlights
What a great way to begin our post season! Our team had a great taper and some very impressive teams. We had 7 new state cuts, 4 new varsity records with most swimmers swimming personal best times. Our girls did a very nice job throughout the season working hard to set up a great taper, listened and focused well down the stretch during taper time and benefited greatly from it. They should all be commended for their efforts this season.

New Records:
Danica deWaha, Holly Postma, Lauren Wynalda, Kara VanderKallen - 200 Medley Relay
Lauren Wynalda - 100 Fly
Taylor Wiercinski - 11 dives
Holly Postma - 100 Breast

New State Cuts:
Lauren Wynalda - 200 Free
Kara VanderKallen - 50 Free, 100 Free
Sam Tinsley - 50 Free, 100 Free
Kassie Blok - 50 Free
Danica deWaha - 100 Back

Congratulations to Lauren Wynalda and Taylor Wiercinski for their nominations for All-Conference.

Thank You!
I just want to take another minute and recognize the parents. We are so blessed to have such amazing parents that are always willing to help and go above and beyond for their daughters and for our team. We had many parents help out over the past few days and throughout the season to provide meals, snacks, cleanup and encouragement. Our team would not be able to do what we do as well as we do without you! Thank you, thank you and thank you again for all of your help and support throughout the season.
