Young Panthers showing good improvement

PLYMOUTH – A young Plymouth girls swimming and diving team has shown good improvement since the beginning of the season.

The Panthers are striving to be at their best when the Eastern Wisconsin Conference championship meet is held Oct. 28 in Kiel. PHS finished second in the meet last year to Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Falls.

PHS is having a strong season thus far. Going into this week, the Panthers are 4-0 in EWC dual action (5-0 overall). The Panthers placed second in the Plymouth Invitational on Sept. 23.

“We have a good chance of winning the conference this season with a few experienced swimmers and some young raw talent,” said second-year PHS head coach Dave Coley at the start of the season.

Coley’s top goals include: develop the underclassmen, win the conference, and qualify relays and individuals for the Division 2 state meet.

“Moving forward we are feeling confident and hopeful about the future,” he said after the Panthers’ strong showing in their invitational.

“Our team is performing very well. Times are dropping and we are gaining confidence. We need to focus on stroke improvement while continuing the daily discipline of conditioning,” said the coach.

PHS has two state qualifiers returning from last season in senior swimmer Katy Coley [coach’s daughter] and junior diver Sydney Kalk. Coley swam in the state 100-yard butterfly and was the EWC champion in this event.

Kalk also has competed in state diving as a freshman. PHS diving coach Greg Heberlein has been pleased with the progress of his diving crew.

The most impressive newcomer to the PHS program thus far this season has been freshman Morgen Frausto. Frausto has excelled in the 100 and 200 freestyle races and the 100 breaststroke.
