Michel wins an NSC swim race

Girl swimmers for Grafton and Port Washington high schools have a tall task competing against larger schools in the North Shore Conference, but the rest of the league struggled to keep up with Libby Michel last Friday.

The Grafton senior won the 200-meter individual medley in 2 minutes, 22.66 seconds at the NSC Meet in West Bend. She was second in the 400 freestyle in 4:34.2.

That helped Grafton amass 237 points and a sixth-place finish of eight teams. Whitefish Bay won with 523 points, followed by West Bend Co-op, 410; Nicolet, 285; Homestead, 268; and Cedarburg, 238. After Grafton, Harftord/Slinger had 224.5 points and Port Washington had 125.5.

Black Hawk Halle Grimm was second in the 100 backstroke in 1:08.05.

Maranda Uttke won the diving meet with 442.65 points on Oct. 14.

The Hawks’ 200 medley relay of Kylee and Halle Grimm and Libby and Lola Michel was second in 2:09.99, and its 200 freestyle relay of Halle Grimm, Lola Michel, Kylee Grimm and Libby Michel was third in 1:57.97.

“I think we had a really good meet,” coach Jack O’Connor said. “Lots of time dropped from our individual seed times.”

For Port, senior Josie Tetzlaff had the highest Pirate finish ­— fifth in the 100 butterfly in 1:13.49. Grace Linstroth was sixth in the 50 freestyle in 29.34 and seventh in the 100 freestyle in 1:06.28.

“At conference, we are reminded just how tough our competition is. But we stay focused on our improvement and goals,” co-coach Danielle Peiffer said.

The Hawks and Pirates swim in the Ashwaubenon Division 2 sectional on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The diving sectional is Friday, Nov. 4, at the same location.
