2019 State Week

The last week of the 2019 Season is upon us!  We have worked and worked and worked, and we have one more opportunity to show everyone what we are all about!

Success

Kaitlyn, Maddy, Grace, and Molly will practice this week and then swim one last time in the UW Natatorium.  The meet next year will be moving to “the Nick“.

Sectional Team members are invited to come to practice this week to support the team and to stay in shape as they head back to their club season or to a Winter high school sport.

We will have a fan bus to the meet.  You need to let the Coaching Staff know if you want to go.  There is very limited deck space, so we have been requested to keep just the athletes and alternates on the deck.  Everyone else will need to be up in the stands.  Tickets will be $6 to watch and can be purchased when we arrive.  The bus will leave Waukesha North at 10 AM and will get back after dinner around 9 PM.

You can find spectator information here

Practice this week will start at 4:30 PM.

Team dinner is yet to be determined at this point.

Sectional Wrap Up

Behind 4 school records, we finished 5th at the Waukesha South Sectional Saturday.

The meet started with a school-record in the 200 Medley Relay. Kaitlyn Curtis, Maddy Ahluwalia, Grace Mautz, and Molly Garvin finished 4th and beat the school record set 2 years ago by over a second.

Kaitlyn broke Claire Stuart’s 2015 record in the 50 Freestyle in finishing 3rd in the event. She followed that up by breaking her own school record set two weeks ago in the 100 Backstroke also finishing 3rd in the event.

Maddy broke her school record she also set two weeks ago at the Conference Meet. She becomes the first swimmer in over 10 years at WNKM to be both a Conference and Sectional Champion.

Those 5 events have qualified for the State Meet next week in Madison.

Other items of note from Sectionals…Ava Heimsch moved to 18th in the 200 Freestyle in school history, Hannah Gallo moved to 14th in the 200 IM, Grace Mautz moved to 4th all-time in the 500 Freestyle while Molly Garvin lowered her 5th place time, Molly also moved up to 17th in the 100 Backstroke, Caroline Johnson moved to 19th in the 100 Breaststroke, and Kaitlyn’s lead off of the last relay places her 12th in the 100 Freestyle in School history.
