Girls swim celebrates senior night in a dual meet against Blue Valley Northwest

Senior Ella Hansen placed first in the 200-yard and 50-yard freestyle events

The girls swim team traveled to Blue Valley Northwest for a dual meet Thursday, April 25. Although they did not win, the team still had fun, celebrating their senior night at the meet. 

Senior Ella Hansen placed first in the 200-yard and 50-yard freestyle events. Sophomore Claire Cooper placed first in the 100-yard freestyle and junior Cora Jones placed first in the 500-yard freestyle.  

According to Hansen, the meet was a very energetic environment for senior night.

“I think the meet went very good,” Hansen said. “The energy was high and the team was super supportive.”

With similar thoughts, junior Kennedy Goertz believed that the team’s motivation to qualify for the state championship played a large factor in the team’s attitude. 

“Everyone did really good and tried their best,” Goertz said. “I think people were really determined to [get personal records] yesterday so that they could qualify for state. [The meet] was definitely high energy with a lot of motivation.” 

Along with Hansen, seniors Kate Haney, Reagan Enemark and Gabriella Nielsen were all celebrated for senior night. For Goertz, the leadership presence of the seniors will be what the team will miss most next year. 

“I will definitely miss how the seniors kept us motivated and organized,” Goertz. “They’re always so fun to be around but they also make sure that we put forth a lot of effort.”

With the state championship right around the corner on May 16-18, Hansen said that she will need to be especially focused for it this year since it conflicts with graduation on May 18.

“I am excited for state this year, but I also need to focus on it more since graduation will be around the same time,” Hansen said.
