Multiple swimmers set personal records as Hatchets take on Mosinee
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk varsity girls swim team hosted Mosinee on Thursday Oct. 22, where seven Hatchet swimmers took on 13 opponents.
“The Hatchets gave it everything and it was close if scores were counted,” said head coach Theresa L’Esperance.
L’Esperance noted Brynnan Stefan, Maddy List, Joanna Phillips and Taya Johnson each set personal records.
Taya won her very first event in her four years of swimming, smashing her own record in the 100 Back,” L’Esperance stated. “Taya almost broke another event record with a nice finish in the 100 Freestyle. Joanna had two firsts, she took four seconds off her personal record in the IM.”
The Hatchets won all three relays, an “exceptional” accomplishment, the coach noted.
“We haven’t had that happen all season,” she stated. “The girls have been putting in a lot of yardage and I was not expecting quite this much improvement at this juncture of the season.”
Karli Woodall traveled to Wisconsin Rapids last week for a Dive meet, where she scored 350 points, beating five Rapids divers. She could potentially be the first GNC Diver of the Year following another dive meet on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
“She has potential to be the first GNC Diver of the Year when she competes against other GNC divers on Tuesday Oct 27.
The Hatchet swimmers have one more meet scheduled at home on Thursday, Oct. 29, before Sectionals begin in November.
