The Princeton swimming and diving team’s season came to an end on Saturday Nov. 9 in the Section 5A Finals as the Tigers we not able to advance any athletes to the state meet.
Although the team did not have any state participants, coach Annika Bordak is happy with the season, and hopeful for the future.
“The girls had a great end to a fantastic season. “We took a total of 12 girls to sections this year. In those twelve girls were two seventh graders, one eighth grader, two freshmen, and three sophomores. More than half of our section crew were considered underclassmen suggesting in a few years, Princeton will have a strong swim and dive team,” stated Bordak.
All of Princeton’s relays were able to make the section finals highlighted by the 400 freestyle consisting of Alanna Mrocek, Shelby Ulm, Kayla Haux and Beth Milam. The team was able to race a combined 4:06, which has been the fastest time for the Tigers in over five years.
Milam was able to place 11th overall in the 200 freestyle as well as eighth in the 500 freestyle, ending the senior’s career on a strong note.
With Princeton only losing three seniors, the Tigers won’t have many swimmers to replace as well as much of the team that finished the season strong.
