Karlie Woodall becomes first GNC Dive Champion; numerous pool, team, personal records set
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk girls swim team had a successful, eventful week, as numerous pool, team, and personal records were set.
“We began with Karlie Woodall setting a new pool and team record in diving,” said head coach Theresa L’Esperance. “She also became the first GNC Dive Champion. Then, Taya Johnson and Julianna Skubal set personal records in our win over Black River Falls! Thank you seniors!”
Other highlights from the win against Black River Falls included Brynann Stefan setting a new personal record in the backstroke, Joanna Phillips setting two personal records in the breaststroke and anchoring the winning 200 free relay. Maddy List ventured into the realm of butterflyers, swimming the fly leg of the medley relay, a first ever for a first year swimmer.
“She just continues to improve,” L’Esperance said. “She also set a personal record in the open 50. Abby Jaecks continues to improve in the 200. She smashed her old record by three seconds. She then broke her open 100 freestyle record and 15 minutes later, broke it again. What a night!”
The top 16 times in each event at the “COVID-19 sectional” in Rhinelander will have an opportunity to move on to a potential culminating meet in Waukesha.
