Quote from new state qualifier Greta Morgenweck: “It was such an accomplishment to qualify in the 500. All of my hard work paid off after practicing this race multiple times. I loved having all of my teammates cheer me on and that’s what pushed me through this tough race.”
From Coach Swett: The girls had a really tough week last week with 3 meets, and we are so proud of them for stepping up and pushing through the fatigue and challenges. This mid-season stretch is always the most difficult, but they are still working hard and having a positive attitude!
Filly Swim is back in action, Thursday, at home for the final time this regular season, hosting Powell for a dual meet.
