SWIMMING AND DIVING

 

The swimming and diving team kicked off their championship season campaign with a powerful performance at the MWAA Conference Championships. The team finished fifth overall, and third in schools representing Class 1.

 

The diving squad of Sofia Laux, Annie Fox, and Caroline Schneithorst got the team off to a great start, by putting up the most points out of all competing schools. Annie placed second, Caroline third, and Sofia grabbed tenth. In the process, Annie and Caroline improved their consideration scores, which helps move them up the rankings. This gives them a great opportunity to qualify for the upcoming state competition.

 

The swimmers got things going with an automatic state qualifying time (AUTO) in the 200 medley relay, while also grabbing a podium spot for third place. The relay team consisted of Caroline Roderick, Marly McNulty, Kate Fesler, and Carly Fesler.

 

Marly McNulty and Emily Knopf both scored in the 200 IM.

 

In the 50 freestyle, Zoe Schoen and Judy Clark both established or tied their season's best time. Hattie McNulty scored in the top 16. Kate Fesler grabbed a career first consideration cut and scored. And, Carly Fesler established an AUTO cut, while placing second overall.

 

In the 200 free relay, the team of Carly Fesler, Caroline Roderick, Judy Clark, and Marly McNulty placed fourth and grabbed an AUTO cut in the process.

Emily Yn improved her 100 backstroke for a season's best.

 

Marly McNulty, Zoe Schoen, and Emily Knopf all improved their 100 breaststroke times. Marly finished fourth overall and Emily scored in the top 16.

 

The meet ended with the 400 freestyle relay team of Caroline Roderick, Kate Fesler, Hattie McNulty, and Carly Fesler placing fifth, and crushing their previous best time by almost 8 seconds.

 

Special thanks goes out to Kate Rendelman and Caroline Schake for volunteering to time! The team is now gearing up for their last dual meet of the season tonight against Ursuline. After that, final preparations will begin for the girls heading to state on February 15.

BASKETBALL

 

Last Tuesday, Varsity traveled to Living Word Christian School. The Saints played a great game and won 44-43 in over-time. Nancy Metz scored nine points, Maria Adamitis and Emma Haas both scored six, and Courtney Grewe and Katie Rodrigues both scored five. Maggie Ignaczak had five rebounds. On Thursday, Varsity hosted a formidable MICDS team. The Saints ultimately lost the game but the team played well. Katie Rodrigues scored 17 points and had nine steals. Courtney Grewe scored four points and Maria Adamitis scored three.

JV basketball played a really close game with MICDS Thursday with MICDS leading by two in the fourth quarter. The Saints took a last second shot but it just wasn't meant to be and lost 25-23. Leading scorers were Allison Smith with 10 points and Mairin Schweppe with seven.
