Swim Fighting for League Title


With an important meet against Trenton on the horizon, the girls swim team is looking to earn a Downriver League Title to cap off what has been a strong season for the Bears.
The team is currently tied for first in points and Trenton is their biggest competition
“Trenton is always the team we have to worry about,” senior captain Bella Bitner said. “They are a strong team every year, but we have the ability to beat them this year. We just need to be mentally ready for the meet.”
The team has had success at dual meets all season. Recently, they beat Huron 104-44. At that meet Senior Ania Toboy and Sophomore Quinn Mittlestat had milestone performances. Tomboy broke the one minute mark for the 100 freestyle and Mittlestat broke the six minute mark in the 500 meter freestyle. Toboy got a PR in that race as well.
Along with dual meets, the team has had a few invitations. At the Downriver Classic on September 24, the team recorded 34 personal best times for individual swimmers. That performance earned them a third place finish in the competition.
“We have been working hard whenever we are in the pool,” Bitner said. “We have a strong group of swimmers and believe we can earn that league title.”
The team plays Trenton at Trenton on Thursday, October 7 at 6pm.
