For the first time in program history, the boys’ and girls’ swim teams had multiple swimmers and relays receive all-conference honors for their performances this past winter.
Leading the way for the Knights was Rebecca Michaels ’20 as she claimed her third-straight 1st Team selection in the 500 freestyle (5:26.40). Joining her for the first time was Maddie Soultanian ’22 who was named 1st Team in the 100 freestyle (58.78). Michaels and Soultanian teamed up with Laura Howard ’21 and Olivia Soultanian ’22 to be named 2nd Team in the 200 (1:50.38) and 400 (3:59.54) freestyle relays.
On the boys’ side, the 400 freestyle relay of Christian Ernst ’19, Gabe Myler ’19, Preston Reep ’19 and Robert Brandl ’20 were named 2nd Team in the 400 freestyle relay (3:43.69).
Also receiving Honorable Mentions were Jonathan Osma ’20 and Ella Quincy ’22.
“To have three relays named all-conference when we never previously even had one is a huge accomplishment for these kids,” said head coach Nolan Silbernagel. “Also the fact that we had two girls named 1st Team all-conference as well really shows how far this program has come and how we will continue to grow and succeed.”
