Hatchet swimmers streak past Hodags
The Hatchet girls swamped Rhinelander on Thursday, building a 125.5-54.5 victory.
“Karli Cecil set 3 personal records as did fellow sophomore Emily Zurfluh,” THS coach Theresa L’Esperance said. “They share the swimmer of the meet. Cecil and Katherine Russell swam excellent butterfly’s going one and two with 108 times, good enough for all-time top-ten finishes. Dallman and M. Kleich went head to head in the 500, and finished one, two with very close times.
“It was great to see (Annaluz Fox and Sami Kleich) dive for the public. They have worked very hard to begin a new event for the team.”
Tomahawk won all but the final event, and placed 1-2 in several, including: diving (Fox 106.70/S. Kleich, 99.6); the 50 free (Morgan Weber, :26.05/Taylor Hansen :28.97); the 100 fly (Katherine Russell, 1:08.27/Cecil, 1:08.71); the 500 free (Baylee Dallman 6:01.73/Mikhayla Kleich, 6:02.66); the 100 back (Russell, 1:11.48/Maddy McPherson, 1:13.53); the 100 brea (Weber, 1:19.92/Michaela Galganski, 1:20.65); the 200 medley relay (Hilt, Galganski, Cecil, Weber, 1:59.02/Dallman, Jamie Sterr, Russell, Jackie Elliott, 2:10.52); and the 200 free relay (Weber, Galganski, Dallman, Hilt, 1:47.68/Sterr, Hansen, S. Kleich, M. Kleich, 1:57.00).
The Hatchets ranked 1st and 3rd in the 200 free (M. Kleich, 2:13.89/McPherson, 2:25.96); the 200 IM (Hilt, 2:28.35/Cecil, 2:36.15); and the 100 free (Hilt, :55.90/Galganski, 1:02.51). The 400 free group of Zurfluh, Emma Bushey, Sarah Bartz and Camryn Swan was 2nd in 4:44.76.
