Swimming Season Ends At AVCTL
The girls swimming season under first year head coach Christopher Kurt has come to an end after the AVCTL Meet that was held at Salina Central on Friday. The girls had no state qualifiers for next weekend’s State Meet in Topeka. The Lady Rocket swimmers finished the season by placing 11th at the League Meet. The girls’ best finishes include two 10th place finishes. Grace Koehn, Madison Ivy, Jenna McCulloch, and Josie Belden recorded a time of 2:39.88 in the 200-Yard Medley. The 200-Yard Freestyle Relay team of McCulloch, Ivy, Jaidyn Myers, and Belden finished with a time of 2:27.79. Coach Kurt knew that this season was going to be a rebuilding year with the girls not having hardly any experience returning after last season was canceled due to Covid-19. However, even though it doesn’t show in the standings, the season was a success as the team gained a lot valuable experience that can be carried into the 2022 season.
