Rhinelander swim club swimmers perform well at first conference meet
Sixty-nine members of the Rhinelander Swim Club travelled to Antigo Nov. 16 for their first official conference meet of the season.
RSC swimmers are accustomed to swimming in a 25-yard pool, while the pool in the McKenna Aquatic Center is a 25 meter pool. Despite this difference, our swimmers had a great day.
Maria Heck (9) dropped 15.63 seconds in her 100 meter freestyle in a time of 1:50.08; Hannah Hoffhein (11) took 10.99 seconds off her 50 meter for a time of 57.32 seconds; Maria Kipper (13) took off 10.69 seconds from her 100 meter freestyle for a time of 1:22.93; Brody Kowieski (7) dropped 13.96 from his 50 meter freestyle for a new time 1:09.21; Trevor Marvin (11) dropped an amazing 18.30 seconds from his 50 meter freestyle for a time of 55.54 seconds; Erin Palutsis (14) took off 14.55 seconds from her 100 meter breaststroke for a time of 2:05.70; Sam Schoppe (7) dropped 16.28 seconds from his 50 meter freestyle for a new time of 1:04.58; and Kylee Younker (9) took off 13.12 seconds in her 50 meter freestyle for a new time of 48.36 seconds.
Several swimmers also came out on top in their individual events. Russell Benoy (12) in the 50 meter breaststroke; Miranda Erdmann (12) in the 50 meter butterfly and 50 meter breaststroke; Charlie Heck (8) in the 25 meter freestyle, 25 meter breaststroke, and 50 meter freestyle; Grace Heck (12) in the 100 meter freestyle and 50 meter backstroke; Brodie Kasmarek (14) in the 100 meter butterfly, freestyle, and backstroke; Marissa Martin (10) in the 50 meter breaststroke; Annalyse Schoppe (8) in the 25 meter butterfly; and Makenna Winnicki (10) in the 50 meter freestyle, 50 meter backstroke, and 100 meter freestyle.
