The girls swim team took home gold at conference last weekend. This isn’t just any other win, though; this is their 16th conference win in a row.

“This is one of the most successful conference yet,” said Tim Busenhart, the girls head coach.

The team had 99 percent time drop and one of the girls even made State. Alexis Colpitts, sophomore, dropped four seconds to make state in the 100 breaststroke (which is a lot of seconds). Allison Garrett and Paige Riekhof both agreed that Colpitts’ time drop was one of the best at the meet and was very impressive.

“I was really surprised that I made the state cut because I was four seconds away and that’s a lot of time in swimming, but I’m happy it happened,” said Colpitts.

All around it seemed like everyone was happy with the meet in a whole and thought it was a good way to end a season for most the girls.

The next meet the girls have is state. They have six who qualified and a few others that are going for relays. Busenhart is anticipating seeing the girls swim at state and show what they have been working on all season.

“I think we will do really well at state. Each of us has our own individual thing to do plus the relays and we are all hyped to show what we can do,” said Riekhof.

All the girls seem ready and prepared to rock state Feb. 17-18 in St. Louis.
