Girls swimming takes second

Girls Swim and Dive comes close to first place at their Centennial League meet at Topeka last Friday, scoring second place with a total of 380 points, only five points away from Washburn Rural who scored 385 points and placed first.

“We did really well. We were five points short of Washburn Rural in team scores,” Junior Lauren Cassou said.” I swam the 50 and 100 free, and the 200 and 400 free relays. Even though we fell short it was a great meet.”

Throughout the season, girls have made personal bests and improved greatly, and they have had ups and downs and can look back and recall their best times.

“ My favorite meet was Great Bend. It was the last meet with the whole team there, and the team atmosphere was great,” Cassou adds.

As the season comes to an end, seniors have to say goodbye and have made a huge impact on our school swim team.

“I definitely improved time wise, but overall I learned a lot of things about being a leader,” Senior Victoria Bedros said. “I competed in the 200 free and got my personal record. My favorite meet was senior night because everyone was really excited and energetic, and it was just a great vibe.”

Even though the team placed second, lots of swimmers got personal records and had a fun time competing with their friends.

“ Both of my relays did really amazing. The other three girls on the relays all had personal bests, or close to personal bests. We ended the meet with our anchor out touching  Washburn’s relay and that was super fun to watch.”
