Girls swimming finishes on strong note
Matt Trusewicz, Reporter
The girl’s swim team finished their season off on October 26th facing the falcons of Divine Child in a scrimmage.
Head coach Susan Alt is content with how the meet and season turned out.
“Even though it was just a scrimmage, the girls still swam their hearts out,” Alt said. “For it being their last meet, it was definitely a good way to end the season.”
Alt also expects the girls to place high at leagues.
Junior Marissa Woida swept the Falcon’s sprinters in the 50 freestyle by taking first in the race with a time of 25.71. Prior to this meet Woida only swam in two other meets due to her coach's decision for her to just stick with diving.
Woida also took first place in diving in front of sophomore Haley Bitner who placed second, junior Mackenzie Patten who took third and junior Madison Mckenzie who placed fourth. Throughout the night the girls placed first in every event except for only two events causing the bears to rack up the points all through the meet.
Senior captain and top backstroker Madelyn Labell, placed first in her event, the 100 yard backstroke.

“The competition was fierce in all events,” Labell said. “Each race was different and they had a lot of talent in all the races they had girls in.”
Labell is also very focused on the upcoming league championship the team has and expects to tie for second place with Woodhaven at leagues.
Junior Samantha Root, who swims the individual medley and backstroke, has similar feelings about the meet and upcoming leagues.
“I think the meet went great, we weren’t really sure how good they were so we didn’t know what to expect,” Root said. “Overall I think that all of us really put our best effort and took it out of the bag and into the pool.”
