This season for the girls’ swim team was a very successful one. The varsity team broke multiple school records and placed eighth overall at the IHSA State tournament for the first time in school history. Placing eighth at State was the highest that the team has placed in program history.

Freshman McKenna Stone placed fifth in the 50 freestyle and sixth in the 100 free after breaking her own school record at State. Sophomore Kellie Willhite competed and placed eighth in the 100 breaststroke.

The 400 and 200 freestyle teams also placed sixth and fifth respectively during State. The girls were able to qualify for the A Final of the tournament in all seven events that they participated in.

“My favorite part of the season was probably the State meet because I like hanging out with my team on the bus to and from the meet and seeing everyone super happy about their swims,” Willhite said.

The team has greatly improved since Metea first opened, and together the girls are looking forward to more records to be broken and State meets to go to in the future. And many swimmers, like Stone, continued to break their own records and school records multiple times this season and over the past couple of years.

The girls have showed a great amount of hard work to get to where they ended this season. They are hoping to continue to work towards more success in the seasons to come for the young program.

“Our team has grown in depth so much since my freshman year. We have so many strong swimmers on both levels and we have grown so much closer the past few years” senior Natalie Lafferty said.
