TRIAD squad looks for repeat success

by Steve Ottman Falls News Correspondent

The Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/ Sheboygan Falls TRIAD Splash girls swimming team heads into the 2015 season looking for a repeat of its success from last year.

With four returning state qualifiers and a total of 10 returning swimmers on its roster, the TRIAD Splash swim team is excited about their outlook in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference.

TRIAD finished in second place in the EWC with a 3-1 record and was second at the EWC meet last season.

The squad also finished third at the WIAA Division Sectional Meet and fifth in the WIAA Division 2 State Championships.

Second-year head coach Amy Silvestri returns and is excited about a strong returning group that should finish well by the end of the season.

“We have a good returning core of varsity swimmers and a good incoming class,” said Silvestri. “Our goal is to get more swimmers to state this season and to finish higher.”

The four returning state qualifiers are senior Emma Herold, junior Kelly Hoekstra, sophomores Kara Friske and Jenna Silvestri from Kohler.

Herold placed third in the 50 freestyle and fourth in the 100 freestyle at state.

Silvestri was fifth in the 200 individual medley and sixth in the 100 breaststroke.

Friske and Hoekstra placed sixth with Silvestri and Herold on two relay teams.

Other returning varsity swimmers are senior Alissa Griswold, sophomores Khloe Ruftan and Madeline Wandschneider from Kohler, along with senior Rebecca Sohn, juniors Ashley Dedering and Kristen Raush from Falls.

The team only lost two seniors, Jordan Theobald (Falls) and Emily Boland (Kohler), from last year’s squad.

Newcomers include freshman Brooke Casper (Falls) and freshman Elena Falconer (Lutheran).

“Our strong points should be in all of the shorter stroke events and the relays,” remarked Silvestri.
