Last week, the girls’ swim team put together an impressive performance at state – placing 17th overall, scoring multiple top 10 finishes, and qualifying for finals in almost every event they swam. “I think the meet went really well overall! We had multiple people return for individual finals and all of our relays made it back which was a big improvement from last year!” said team captain, Mia Shaeffer.

The girls had some impressive individual finishes in both diving and swimming events. Lauren Grybowski placed 8th in a field of 45 other divers – a feat made even more impressive by the fact that this is her first year diving. Stephanie Boyd placed 20th in the 50 free and Abigail Shaw placed 11th in the 100 fly.

Despite competing in three preliminary events on Thursday, Mia Shaeffer still managed to come back and score a second place finish in the 100 fly on Friday. “I was really excited for that race because it’s my favorite and it meant a lot to me that I was able to do so well since it’s my senior year! During the race, I was really just focusing on trying to race the rest of the heat so I could place as high as possible,” said Shaeffer. She also placed 11th in the 100 backstroke and contributed to two of the team’s relays.

The 200 medley relay comprised of Leanne Telle, Abigail Shaw, Mia Shaffer, and Naomi Shaw placed 13th. The 200 freestyle relay comprised of Naomi Shaw, Stephanie Boyd, Leanne Telle, and Mia Shaeffer placed 16th.

The girls are finishing out the season with an overall record of 4-3 and a league record of 4-2. “I think we had strong performances from everyone throughout the season and our team placed higher at leagues and state than we did last year which was great!” said Shaeffer of the season.
