PHS scored 147 points, followed by Brillion/Valders/ Chilton with 125 and Berlin, 22. A triangular counts as two dual meets. The Panthers chalked up an 8-0 EWC dual record and finished the regular season with a 9-1 overall mark.

The Panthers’ first-place finishers included: Morgen Frausto in the 200-yard freestyle; Sydney Kalk, diving; Katy Coley, 100 butterfly; Brianne Roy, 500 freestyle; Jennifer Novotny, 100 breast- stroke; and the 400 freestyle relay.

The 400 relay team of Frausto, Katie Sanborn, Keeley Kuru and Coley posted a pool-record time of 3 minutes, 59.60 seconds. Coley recorded a pool-record 1:05.32 en route to placing second in the 100 backstroke.

“We will try to bring home a [Eastern Wisconsin] conference championship,” said Panther head coach Dave Coley.

PHS will compete in the EWC championship meet Saturday at Kiel. Diving will start at 10 a.m., followed by swimming at 1 p.m.

“There were a lot of best times for junior varsity swimmers in their last meet of the year,” said Coley.

PHS won the JV triangular with 179 points, followed by B/V/C with 13 and Berlin, five.

“Because our divers had no other team competition at Chilton, the Plymouth divers dove against themselves. They are their own best competition,” said PHS diving coach Greg Heberlein. “They dove great.

“And I don’t know which girl is going to win on any particular night. Izzy Mc- Cabe had the highest score last Thursday. Sydney Kalk and Danielle Tesky were just a few points behind her.”

Coach Coley thinks PHS is the favorite to win the EWC title. The Panthers finished second in the EWC Meet to Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/ Sheboygan Falls each of the past two years. K/L/F is a title contender, according to the coach.

“Our main goals are to swim our best times and win the meet,” said coach Coley.

He pointed out the keys for the PHS swimmers to perform well at the meet:

“Stay focused, remember what we learned, don’t DQ [disqualify], have streamlined starts and turns, race other swimmers nearby and swim hard all the way to the finish,” said the coach.

“We are putting our sights on finishing with the top-four places in diving on Saturday at the conference meet,” said Heberlein.

“All five girls are still working on new dives that they may use on Saturday.”

Plymouth’s divers who will compete in the EWC Meet are McCabe, Kalk, Tesky, Katie Waitkus and Miranda Rautmann.
